And in Life's Evening Time
I'm about to embark on a week of postcards relating to books and reading and her is one that I'm very fond of.
The card is a reproduction of an advertisement for Edison Mazda lamps from 1920 and I find it a most charming picture of contentment, complete with the cat. The lamp doesn't appear to be producing as much light as what I take to be the fire but I won't let that bother me. The name Mazda comes from the Zoroastrian god, Ahura Mazda meaning light of wisdom.
