Flames

Fire has got to be one of the most beautiful yet terrifying natural forces that there is.  The flickering, seemingly insubstantial flames are shape-shifters, huddling low one minute, soaring high the next, captivating the eyes with their brilliance.  However, the same fire which so delicately hovers around the wick of a candle can so grow with unbelievable speed into walls of flame that devour trees and houses, leaving cinders in their wake.  Fire is not a force to be taken lightly.

Yet a few days ago, in our back yard, we harnessed the wildness of the flames to prepare a meal–and a delicious one at that!  It’s truly fantastic (in the original sense of the word).
