Who sang the songs that saved your life?
The answer to this question is certainly not universal. Yet, for the droves of outliers who braved the plight of adolescence with a ragged “Queen is Dead” T-Shirt on their backs and a melting yellow Walkman in hand, one ambivalent troubadour stands heroic.
Our ears perked up at his brave and fiery moans. His brainy frankness gave us the courage to flaunt our awkwardness with wild abandon. He wrote our battle hymns and we proudly took up spectacles and paperbacks for arms against the world with him. For the clumsy and shy finally had a champion, and as the records spun on we listened to his croons assured it was sufficient to be HALF A PERSON.
With this we thank you.
Half a Person is a heroic idealization. Chest exposed, coy grin and quaffed to perfection, its only vulnerabilities are a band-aid covered gland and a cotton wick.

Beeswax is the only truly healthy and sustainable material that may be burned with a wick. It is a honeybee bi-product and its extraction does not harm the colonies from which it is sourced. Burning beeswax puts out negative ions which consequently clean the air we breathe. It is smokeless, peculiarly long burning and naturally smells like honey.
