By Candlelight, Sally.

By Candlelight.


about this piece.
I lit candles for all the babies I was remembering on October 15 this year. I had 157 names and I thought of each family left behind with each candle I lit. There was a real sense of peace in my household for the hour the candles burnt. Though we had to eventually blow them all out, the babies they represented will never be forgotten. -Sally
