Where you are connected makes all the difference

I move the candle to the shadows so its flame is better seen:
The shadow means nothing to the flame because
the flame is connected to the wick, not to the shadow;
the light means nothing to the flame because
the flame is connected to the wick, not to the light;
Where you are connected makes all the difference –
Listen!
