I just wrote this post at my column on the Washington Times Communities. The main idea is that I found this simple ceremony of children lighting candles and walking through a spiral of fresh evergreens to be profoundly moving.
It’s late, and I don’t know why the photo of the apple candle wasn’t loading to the longer article, but here it is. No photos of the actual event, beautiful as it was and as much as I’d like a postcard; that, of course, would take you out of the moment.
That was such a lovely post on the Times, and the picture speaks a thousand more words as well.
