Candles of hope at the Gypsy Camp...


Nine days into Vi’s Festival of Lights, and every night the camp glowss with strings lanterns hung from wagon to wagon.

Not far from the camp there is an ancient well dedicated to the Magna Mater, the Great Mother. On a low stone wall overlooking the grotto, many candles have been lit. Pilgrims come every day to light candles for peace, for hope, for light in the world.

During this most special month, many of the candles have been dedicated to our Silk Road travellers, and candles have been lit for:

Vi, a sweet rose candle of thankfulness for her continued good health
For Heather and Darryl, a prayer candle lit constantly with love and hope
For AshleyShea and her brother Stan, a candle that lights the way for all who are in darkness
For Megan and her mother, a candle of healing memories
For Nessie and the girls, heart shaped candles from Lavengro, nestling in a bed of rosebuds

There are also candles for those who have been called away from the Silk Road by the pressures of the real world, a rainbow of candles for the artists…and so many more…everyone is welcome to light a candle here and place a dedication with it.

The candles light the night. The flickering flames send their positive energy to me and the others who are in need of recharging so-to-speak. The camp is aglow with energy ... let us send it across the globe until it engulfs Heather and Darryl who are in the throes of their on-going troubles.
