    Not A Bonfire, Just A Nice Romantic Camp Fire

    Warm enough you keep close to the one next to you but you don't have to shield your face from the heat. Crackling, charring, steaming. Throw another log on the fire. Well, not a log but some stout twigs. Although I remember one time at Starved Rock State Park in Illinois, back...

    and the glow of the fire on everybody's faces in the dark. Sadly, I've only been to two campfires so far, though. The first time I went, I was pretty young but I enjoyed a lot nevertheless. The second one was more fun than the first but it ended all of a sudden when it began to...

    I just get lost staring into a roaring fire. The flames are never repeated, anywhere in nature, anywhere in the world. My fire is the ONLY one doing what it's doing. And the color of the burning coals once the flames die down is found no where else in nature that I can think...

    It's dark. Only the fire is burning in the

    middle of the circle. The circle of your friends (and you, of course). Someone is playing everyones favorite songs on a guitar and you sing, dance and laugh with your friends. Maybe kissing if you have a boy-/girlfriend. That's life. That's joy, happiness.
