Time Is Precious

As a species we have managed to change and control everything that goes on around us, we can tell the future by merely looking at greying clouds, create life saving remedies from the ground we walk upon, we have tamed other species to jump on command and bring us newspapers. Our intelligence is never ending. However, I’m…

Candles

Candles seem so generic. Little sticks of wax that burn down, to either create mood or fragrance. We take advantage of the beauty of candles.
