    Some Of My Most Memorable Times Were Spent....

    with neighbors in Greensboro, NC, as we sat around a huge bonfire laughing, talking, drinking, and watching football. My next door neighbor had pulled cable out to the bonfire, and so we watched games as the fire roared and the temperatures dipped.  I'll never forget...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
