Shooting Candles Of The Night

Joseph Wright of Derby - Firework Display at the Castel Sant' Angelo in Rome (1779)

'The repose of sleep refreshes only the body. It rarely sets the soul at rest. The repose of the night does not belong to us. It is not the possession of our being. Sleep opens within us an inn for phantoms. In the morning we must sweep out the shadows.'

Gaston Bachelard
