Roman Candles

"Because the only people that interest me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, desirous of everything at the same time; the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars."
 -Jack Kerouac

This quote by Jack Kerouac is one of my favorites. I also happen to really love Roman candles (fireworks). I live in a city that seems to have an obsession with them. Every other night in the summer, there's a firework display happening or throughout the year for holidays and special events. But here are some pictures of traditional candles. Something about being in the presence of candles or just looking at pictures makes me relaxed and happy. I seriously think it reverts me back to a previous life when there wasn't electricity. Either that or I'm just a romantic soul (could be my Cancer Ascendant).

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
