Wish – WPC

When we blow out the candles on a birthday cake, it’s customary to make a silent wish.  It’s said that this practice derives from a belief in ancient Greece that smoke carried prayers to the heavens.  Remember that, next time you blow out the candles. 🙂

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    Hi Sandra, I will remember that next time…. lovely photos by the way. I just don’t seem to be able to get myself together to post anything these days, hope it passes soon. Take care Dee.


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
