Photo-Finish Friday -- Fire


Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. ~William Butler Yeats

About the pic: A few weeks ago, a friend and I felt like starting a fire for no reason. So we did and kept it going all day. Made sense at the time.

PFF is the creation of Leah J. Utas.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

I love a good fire. Good work on keeping it going, and thanks for the pic.

There's something comforting about a good fire. Home fires burning, stories told round the campfire, chestnuts roasting. I guess in a way it represents warmth and family and friendship.

David Cranmer said...

Leah, It's always a pleasure to join in when I can.

Sandra, Agreed. And that's what we needed being thousands of miles from home.

Ron Scheer said...

Big fire is OK. Too big fire, not so much...

David Cranmer said...

Very, very wise words, sir.

Sounds like primitive man rearing his head.

Lois Karlin said...

The call of the wild! I love to stare at fires.

David Cranmer said...

Charles/Lois, I am reading quite a bit of Jack London these days.

quoting the old squire of Sligo, eh? good man, good man.

It's the "made sense at the time" comment which has me thinking other shenanigans were afoot.

Reb said...

Love fires, don't need reasons for them.

Jodi MacArthur said...

Man make fire. *beats chest* All day? Did you make smoke signals? And to whom?

David Cranmer said...

Kieran, So true, so true.

Mike, Nope, that was it. Fire, fire, and more fire.

Reb, Amen

Jodi, I wish I could say there was a greater purpose but its sole reason was to entertain.

I hope you at least had some marshmallows...and maybe the making of some s'mores!

Every time I'm near a fire, I'm thinking...'Where can I get some marshmallows...?'

David Cranmer said...

Honest to goodness we did talk about s'mores if we did it another day. But, alas, it was not meant to be. Once the firemen and Hungarian acrobats showed up it was all over.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

How could it have been all over at that point?!?

David Cranmer said...

Ha. Good point, Alyssa! :)
