I Love To Look At Fire

    Its warmness soothe me

    but its fiery destructiveness fascinates me. It is life and death at the same times. I like things with contradictory properties.

    It's mesmerizing and warm

    and reminds me of campfires because camping is filled with fun and laughter and silliness and memories of kidless, care free nights and drinking and skinny dipping and not being a responsible adult. I love those memories. I grew up way too fast.

    Back when I went to see family friends in their

    cabin by the lake, we would make the long trek (good luck trying to get back to the cabin quickly have to go to the bathroom bad) to the lake side where we set up a campfire. I'd poke sticks in it, just staring, lost in thought. Then there was that one time my mom was messing...

    Peace

    A roaring fire is one of the most peaceful things I can think of in life. It reminds me of my childhood spent around the campfire as my father played card games with us or told us stories by the kerosene lantern's light.  Even just thinking about it now brought peace over me...

    I just like to see the beautiful flame uprise.

    As if it's life, turning up in a split second. Like boom, it's alive. But then boom, it's gone, into thin air. The beautiful red flame is now black and dead. Burnt and destroyed.

    I recently enjoyed watching my husband's ******

    burn in a fire. When I found out he was gay and was having an affair with his best friend of 35 years, I gathered up love letters, pictures, lingerie, and anything else (****** included) that reminded me of the lies I had been living in and I threw them in the fire. It was...

    The crackle of the wood,

    the roar of the flames and the warmth of this beautiful fire. It's cold and wet outside, let's not go there in that unfriendly world my dear. Sitting on the thick, shaggy rug I dig my toes into the furry ground, hot chocolate seeping warmth into me. I need comfort on this...

    It takes me away, the look of fire,

    to another world, twisting, turning, climbing, swirling, red, blue hue, yellow and orange, up and aside and all around, the visions always bring life to a curious intellect, wondering and wandering flames, into the sky, against a black drop of night.. Trees around, especially...

    My grandparents had a coal fire .

    .. much of my childhood winter nights were spent watching the flames, and patterns in the fire ... it's mesmerizing.

    Fire is awesome. If you have any kind of copper,

    add it to the fire. You'll get rainbow flames.

    Some of the best times are sitting around the

    fire. Telling a story, singing, or just talking about whatever. What I look forward to about camping is the fire and the time spent there.

    Fire is mesmerizing..

    . It's ability to destroy, and it's capacity to create, intertwine in a beautiful display of raw, carnal power.

    Down by the water I made a small bonfire every

    night last week while on vacation. Leaves, twigs, smaller, than larger branches - roast some marshmallows, then go to bed smelling like wood smoke - I miss that

    When I was little we always had gas fires set

    up with coals. I would sit with my dog in front of the fire and read a book or state into the flames. It was so relaxing. I always wanted the power to control fire as well. When we traveled long distance in the car I would imagine whole swaths of the land that was flying by...

    Fire to me is mesmerizing.

    it helps me relax, it makes me sleepy. the sound and smell is soothing as well. i would find myself gazing at our fireplace for what seemed like hours, drifting off into my own world. fire is just so beautiful.
