Hanukkah Dinner Theater
We just got back, quite late, from a trip to Arkansas (on which more later). I lit Hanukkah candles, which I set up in such a way so that they're facing our outside window and perpendicular to the air conditioner. (They're Sabbath-type mini-candles, with a metal disc at the bottom of the wax.) Though the AC isn't on, the slight breeze blowing through its apertures has been blowing the wax away, very slowly, from the burning wicks, so that the lights stand in the center of a waxen runway, like spotlights in the snow, or a marquee for the premiere of "This Is Hanukkah."
