Appreciation of beauty

Appreciation of beauty is The ability to recognize and acknowledge beauty, splendor, brilliance, and astute performance in different realms of life.

There is goodness and beauty in all things. Tonight I lit a candle and watched it as it danced and flickered around its wick. It's colors we're brilliant. Fire is a beautiful thing. The blue in it is beautiful, and the light and warmth that come from the flame as it envelops whatever it is burning are pretty amazing too when you think about it. Fire seems to just do when it is supposed to do. Burn.
I thought about the dim light that comes from a small flame. How did people ever use that as their light source? It is so dim compared to the light that I'm used to. And yet it is enough to read by.
