I found this large kerosene oil lamp at my local antique store, it's simplicity is so perfect. I turned off the lights in the house after setting up this lamp, my house instantly quiet down. It made a lot of items in my room seemed redundant. Our modern life is so complicated, there are so much background noise and distractions, I wonder if all that modern conveniences or advances are worth the price we pay for? Sometimes it could be a good thing to step back in time a bit.
