    Power Outage

    A few weeks ago we had the power go out in my apartment complex. I had no tv, no radio, no nothing. My ipod ran out of batteries so there was nothing for me to do, except read. This was the first time in a long time that I read a book.  I lit one of my many...

    Last Winter

    It's extremely hard. Can't see the words very well. I was better off using a flashlight, which i switched to since I couldn't see. That was last winter. We had a power outtage.

    Oils Well Or The Short Ramblings On The History Of Llghting.

    I use oil lighting all the time. Electrickery is fine, 3 phase theory positively sexy, r @ angle theta and all that. But there is something warm and intimate, dark and deep, lonely and sentinel piercing the dark in the semi luscent cast from a paraffin lamp. A friend who was...
