The Task Light

I set up this little clip light to augment the ambient light in a coffee shop. The light came from the Great Big Northern European Home Furnishings Chain, and I wish I’d bought a dozen or two when I bought several to fill Christmas stockings. The LED light is warm and comfortable to the eye, and the battery is powered by a windowsill charger that will afford me a free ride in low-level illumination. The Great Big Hiking Co-op sells the charger, which works even on a dismal February windowsill, as long as I'm not in a hurry.

The design of this house precedes electricity, and the rooms are at their best when lighted with numerous small, low sources that replicate candlesticks and oil lamps. The little clip-ons are a safer, cheaper, more efficient alternative.
