Follow the candles

to where they may lead you.

Down the dark corridor you walk.

Expecting a monster at every corner.

No one appears.

No sounds to break the dead quiet.

Down the corridor you go.

Waiting for something or someone.

But all you see is darkness

and more candles.

A door appears at the end.

It creaks open.

Do you really want to see what

is on the other side?

Human nature propels you forward.

Forward into the dark gloom.

What happens next?

The answer is hidden in the

inner recesses of your mind.

Follow your nightmare to its

bitter end.

Hurry before you wake up.

There’s no turning back now.

    Is it a happy holiday? I celebrate Chanukah. I think it’s a happy holiday. There are very few Jewish holidays that are truly happy.
