sacred day two hundred twenty-nine

sacred flames.

my women are called to mind at various points.  sometimes i simply think about them, other times i reach out to them, telling them i love them.  today i hurt for a friend who loved a young man that was killed in an automobile crash.  such saddness.  he was her family.  he was a bright light in the world and there is something missing.  he's left his mark as those who love carry him within them.  i didn't know this teenager.  i know the love others carry for him.  i carry one of those in love.  so i light a candle.  a sacred flame recognizing far better than i can in words what change has happened.  a flame that represents love, life, and loss.  peace. peace. peace.
