Second night with a candle going. Not for religious reasons (in the strictest sense of the word), but because over in Perth a young asylum seeker is close to death. He is on a hunger strike. He and his brother have been separated for reasons of inmate control, his brother is unable to be with him.

A candlight vigil is being held outside the hospital. I can't be there (aside from being unwell, Perth is on the other side of our very large country), so I've got a candle outside my front door.

The air is still and it's on a stable base. Otherwise it would be on the kitchen window sill which is where naked flames usually go, but I feel a need to do something that errs on the side of a public statement than a private sentiment.

What the hell is happening to my home?
