Valentines & Candles

Watchful Magpie ©2008 Terry Gorley

I've chosen this Magpie for my photo because being a scavenger, it represents the preconceived notions of what is acceptable in society. When you look beyond to see the beauty ... that is Love!

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day ... a day, thanks to Cupid for love and romance. We most often think of chocolate, flowers and hearts. I'm thinking about candles.

Candles are a symbol of Enlightment. How do you view love? Do you give it unconditionally? Do you accept love without question?

What about Love in the grander scheme of things? World Peace & Love. The acceptance of others ... regardless of Gender, Ethnicity, Country of Origin, Religion, Age, Spirituality, or Social Status

What about Justice & Freedom as written and proposed by
Raphael Louis?

Global peace shall come not as a wave of light but as a singular candle flickering and holding off the night of violence. As more households are joined in the effort other homes will also have a candle flickering in their windows. One candle cannot defeat the darkness. Many candles can. Let the candle be our symbol. Let its light illuminate humanity in time.

A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.
