There is something primal about fire, something mysterious about the flame's ability to ignite a spark within us and to link us to the worlds beyond ourselves. There is something about a candle.
A microcosm of cosmic light.
Everywhere and anywhere, people came together. They came carrying candles. Flickering light. Rippling light. Rivers of light. Holy light. Sometimes the only comfort we know is a candle in the wind.
