Glowing. Warm. Inviting. Cozy. Protecting. Intense. Crackling. Romantic. Flickering. Those are all words that describe a good ol’ bonfire. Once it’s going good and strong, folks gather ’round. Like moths, we can’t resist. The dancing flames are hypnotic. We are grateful that they pull us in and melt away daily troubles. Since the ground can be damp this time of year, we also grab a seat. Any kind will do. Some prefer a saddle blanket or stump. Others need a chair. Beverages and s’mores are optional, but appreciated.
