i actually try to live my evenings by candlelight, no joke.

much easier when you're in a 1-bedroom apartment, but i think there's something to be said for the gradual loss of light during the day that prepares you for sleep. light pollution is incredibly disruptive to our natural rhythms (however admittedly necessary it is). i find that lighting a room full of candles around when i get home from work and the gym around 9:30 or so is every bit as relaxing and detoxifying as a glass of wine.

just saying. and no energy wasted. and soft bulbs with lampshades and dimmers are good, too. flattering, even.

Why not stick to proper electrical lighting and a glass (or half bottle) or wine?

I used to use candles in college, especially for reading. It was really relaxing. Only problem now is that I have more than enough chores and things to do to keep me busy until dawn!

i said it was as relaxing as a glass/bottle of wine, i didn't say it was in replacement of said glass/bottle.

the two go together well.

Low lighting is nice.

Pet hate: people who feel the need to floodlight their entire property at all hours. Even if they're home. I know, I know, it's cause of all the burglars and terrists and stuff, but really... the boogeyman won't be stopped by mere electricity. You're still going to die.
