There's Something About Flickering Flames...

...I find it difficult to clear my mind enough to meditate, but staring into a fire is something I can do for hours...  

I read recently about driftwood fires...  apparently the salt soaks into the wood and when it burns the flames are the most beautiful colours...

...I think I need to go to the beach and collect some driftwood...

I love a good fire.

My favorite is going Skiing in the morning and afternoon, then coming home just before the sun goes down, and sparking up a fire, to relax in front of before dinner!

I know I would..the crackle..the warmth. Theres something wild about camp/bon fires.

There are so many little secluded beaches along the coast of BC... looking out over the Strait of Georgia...<br />
<br />
Most can only be reached by boat...

Not an angel, but I try to be the best I can be...<br />
<br />
You're welcome to join me at my virtual bonfire on the beach...<br />
<br />
Everyone who finds peace watching a flickering fire is welcome...

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm<br />
<br />
count me in too.

I use to camp in Montauk, Long Island and found the fires we had on the beach to be the picture perfect fires ... it must have been the driftwood.<br />

There is no place like the ocean and it's inlets for finding beautiful pieces of driftwood. I still have a couple of pieces in my Pennsylvania gardens. These days I am into the beautiful stone in the area. We sit on top of the Marcellus Shale deposits, a source of natural gas. Long story ... .not a forum for that here.<br />

It's a blessing to focus on driftwood and bring in the smell of the salt air once again.<br />
Bless you for bringing this memory to life again for me.<br />

I wondered if somebody was going to think I was an arsonist... I'm not, but I do love campfires, bonfires on the beach, and fireplaces...<br />

...everyone who loves to stare into a fire is welcome to come...
