I've always loved a not direct light - preferring a couple of small light sources versus the blaring overhead.
Oil lamp .... erm no. I have this nose that goes right to the headache gland in the head and it bothers me - same when someone blows out a match or candle around me -- DIOS MIO - instant front lobe headache - ugh. (I'm such a picky-poo person, aren't I?
) - stinks though.
So in my bedroom now - I have two low level table lamps on - one for me on the computer - and to light up the fish who like it at night - and the other by my bed.
At work - we have the overhead flourescent lights - some that take 4 bulbs (ugh). Now some ladies love this searing brilliant light and call housekeeping to change out that bad 4th bulb that died.
Me? I just about bribed the guy to stay away from my dim 2 lights in the two sets of lights over my head for the last couple years. My last job - the guys would just stare at me and replace the slightly dim lightbulbs and so I so then sat in a freaking tanning booth at high noon, with a nuclear blast overhead (they should have provided sunglasses with those light bulbs!). HUGE FREAKIN headache every single day when I left work.
Now in my old area - with the "Green" stuff working at the college - they're reducing the flourescent lightbulbs in the overheads from 4 to 2, and even eliminating some of the way too multiple lights altogether - plus in their offices - preferring to use a couple of smaller table lamps with energy saving lightbulbs.
However, I do use candles in my wiccan ways and I must say a room or outdoor area filled with candles is awesome ... and sexy.
