was generally in a crappy mood for much of the day and then on the way home passed by all the houses with all the lit lamps... immediate lift mood! that and happy music on the ipod.
anthem of the moment: helplessness blues - fleet foxes (i shall karaoke it someday!)
realised i have never known why the lamps, just filled 'em up with oil and lit em up - full of glee and joy at the pretty – and the fun, sometimes arduous task of making sure the bad wind doesn't put em out. and it matters not – why the lamps. the lamps just are. the lamps must be. all is well in the world :)
was a good thing to come home to, some already lit – others waiting just for me. so much satisfaction!
