December fragments #20

The light is not always benign…

A stray fact: insects are not drawn to candle flames, they are drawn to the light on the far side of the flame, they go into the flame and sizzle to nothingness because they’re so eager to get to the light on the other side.

—Michael Cunningham, By Nightfall
