Burning Embers

Burning Embers

Like a living thing
Pulsing light, shifting, moving
Radiating warmth 

Ken Goree

I was just sitting around a small bon fire with friends.  I realized how the warmth of the embers and the flickering shifting arrange and yellow glow of the coals weaves a closeness between people.  I usually feel the need to keep conversations going when there is group of people together; silence feels awkward.  Around a fire, that changes.  Silently watching the dance of light within a camp fire, or even a fireplace fire is not taboo.  It is like a shared meditation.
