    There's Something About A Bonfire...

    There's something about a bonfire that is very fascinating and primal. I know that many suburbanites and city dwellers have never experienced a bonfire, but here out in the country there are no restrictions on bonfires as there are in densely populated regions, a perk of...

    On the Last Day of School.....

    ....we had a bonfire to burn all of our homework, worksheets, projects, books, and other school items from the past year.  It was so refreshing.  :)

    There is just something so primal about sitting around a fire at night, any fire, but there is something special about a large bonfire. I reaches back to our past, when fire was what kept the darkness away, the dangers in the dark, Yes, there is something special about a large...

    Last Night

    Had a great big bonfire last night with smores and vodka. It was great. I had it with some friends I hadn't seen in a long while (long story short = my other friends that I've had for years have decided to abandon me because I won't have sex with them). Anywho, it was great just...

    Crackles Of Time And Patience

    There is something very mystical about fires as it is one of the strongest elements of nature and of the fiercest. Every flame is melded with the one next to it emanating the strongest source of heat and information. It is also referenced as to the heart or flame of life and...

    The Peace In My Backyard...

    I love bonfires. My home sits on a little over an acre of land. I have a fire ring that is of course surrounded by logs and chairs to relax in. I enjoy taking an evening and doing it all outside!! Gathering the blankets, getting the food around to cook over the fire and just...

    The flickering fire captivates my attention

    as the dark sky cloaks me in a black blanket. My eyes burn a fiery gold and orange colours dance across my face. The chilly air licks my back, making my hair stand up. Other than the crackling noises of the impatient fire, all is silent. I am left with nothing but the flames...

    My favorite parties have never been the off the

    wall keggers. I've always preferred a group of 6-12 around a fire pit. The random conversations, the covert cuddling, the oooh's and aaahh's of the fire. Plus, I get to do my party trick! As a glass blower, I have a high tolerance to heat so I'm able to hold my hand in the fire...

    I went to a bonfire last night at my Mom's

    boyfriends. He lives up in the woods. It was so peaceful. Up on the hill where he lives we were watching the lake and the fire. What is it about fires that just takes all the stresses of the day away.
