Given to Mary from Emily.
I think this picture might be too phallic
"Happy Fall Equinox!" says Emily to Mary.  The equinox was yesterday--the midpoint between the summer and winter counterparts--and another indicator we're all moving toward a slooow descent into darkness.  To combat the darkness, Emily wanted to pass along some light.  As a speech pathologist, she gets good-bye gifts, including many candles.  At the time of this blog post, she had a dirty dozen in her possession and claims she picked out the two best smelling ones.  Mary and I didn't realize that moonlight had a scent, but it evidently does.  She also had some extra LED lights that she uses in her annual winter art and music festival.  Because it's impact will grapple you at home, I should let you know that Mary plans on scalloping the single string of lights over a window.  Recently purchasing a home whose decor had not been updated in 30 years, Mary thought a single scallop would be a real uptick.
