flame

2012.12.06

I bought a candle last week, but I’ve found that it does not make sense.
It is a glass jar, filled with scented wax and a small stick of wood.
It smells wonderful, and crackles gently like a small fire.
But it provides too little light to read by.

It provides a sense of warmth by smell, but provides little light or heat.
What use is a flame without these?
