A candle (lit for a stillborn child) that is blowing in the wind

This photo was taken at the chapel dedicated to the Immaculate Conception that stands at the top of San Cristobal hill in Santiago, Chile. Outside the chapel is an area where candles can be lit as part of prayers. I lit this candle in sorrow for the death of my niece Darby's child who had been delivered stillborn a few days before. The candle flickered in a gentle breeze. It was sad and peaceful.
