Ever since a rather serious encounter with a rogue candle resting on the kitchen counter, I have been a dedicated convert to the battery operated version of this venue of light. I have several colored lights arranged on a wall bookshelf, all beaming in a luminous, verdant, brilliant shade of green. To me, that beautiful color represents the luxury of stability and safety.
For this same reason, I have begun wearing a flower in my hair each day. Whenever I pass by a mirror and glance into it, I see a lovely offering of nature tucked into the wisps of hair surrounding my face, bringing a freshness into my consciousness and the lovely scent/ reminder of the beauty of an open heart.
Simple gestures...the gentle arrangement of candles and flowers. Simple but also profound for they signal a tender aspiration to connect more deeply with the challenge and joy of returning to the love-filled creature Who (underneath our earthly disguises) We Truly Are.
