A Single Candle In the Dark

Fabiola misses candlelight.  Perhaps she exagerates if her implication is that she ever used it for primary lighting.  She has, however, at times lived by it. One candle at a time if necessary. 
Fabiola is being pensive, new fangled low-vo-flo bulbs don't give off the same light.  Fabiola has yet to run across one that smells of beeswax and heaven.
To all the candles in Fabiola's life, thanks for your light.

I'm surrounded by candles! There is nothing more soothing than to sit and enjoy a burning candle. The fake ones definitely don't do it...(Hugs)Indigo

You're my candle in the dark.

Consider this a binary LED firefly flicker floating on a fast steady burning glowing fuse.

I love this entry. I feel the fire. I feel fine.

I read something the other day about how, since the invention of the bulb, we suddenly now know the startling distinction between flat-out dark and five-watts of light. Yet we are at a loss to determine the supposedly subtle difference between 95 and 100 watts.

Blinded by the light, I guess.

I think I’m going to train myself on this trail of thought for a little while.

I think it might have something to do with building up immunity to things.

Thanks for the spark.

Darlings! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Indigo - you are not just a candle in the dark to the Fab, you are one of her heros! Hugs back!

Dear, Dear Anony, the Fab wouldn't be the Fab without you.

PK - thanks for flickering by! Fabiola has a special fondness for fireflys and firefly ways.

You have the Fab thinking too, now. Perhaps a zero to five, it is the difference between seeing something or nothing at all. That is enough for most people. Once a person can see they stop looking. Fab is guilty of that too. Fab must ponder.

Just read 1heckofaguy's ketchup entry. Damn, I needed that laugh. Thanks for pointing me that way, Fab.
