for me there comfort. the abilty to change the dark into light. they bring me joy and comfort. so what about you?
This describes my draw to torches. Having the power to bring visibility into the murk is a wonderful thing, very empowering and full of purpose. Portable lighting has always been fun for me, but before the accessibility and affordability of baseline LED lights, we mostly used kerosene lanterns, and much more often candles. But thanks to my mother's house catching fire because of an untended candle way before I was born, I couldn't and didn't even want to consider them more than an emergency resource. Flashlights, though, are far safer and more versatile, and have good range.for me there comfort. the abilty to change the dark into light. they bring me joy and comfort. so what about you?
Well, there is more to it than that, but I can't see in the dark, and that's a fact, Jack. If I could afford night vision devices, I'd have bought some by now.for real thats it? i guess my passion goes deeper but i have isues lol
