“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

    second I love candles especially scented candles. I even put a note in my suitcase reminding me to buy a yankee candle this summer when I am in the states so I can light it as soon as we get to our new house in Germany, even before we unpack the suitcases. Candles just make a house feel and smell better!
