Hopefully many DO have the opportunity to be able to sit outside around an Autumn fire and visit with friends. W are fortunate in Virginny to have quite a few get togethers with friends and other Pagans,where we do just that,sit around a fire and chat...or with our neighbors....Some times we just go out ourselves....anyone else fire scry? read the fire? We also enjoy the larger get togethers with drum circles.....all magical times....What do you get out of sitting,dancing,being around a fire?
Feel free to add any of your pics,experiences,things you "see",or not......
This pot is really olde. Our friends.....
Is that a small fae I see inside the fire...seems like he's dancing..
LOL,indeed it is! I didnt mention it,but he is there......to the left of the pot,looking at it.....NICE!!
Yes that's where he is. I think there are a few others too. But they don't come up as clearly as him.
C'lass if it wasn't for our fire we'd freeze to death come the cold times. It's how we heat the house. It's truly integral to our home. Further than that though it does have a hypnotic effect on me. i could sit and watch the fire till I fall asleep every night. i love the smell of the wood as it burns, and the different color flames that dance about the hearth. I have had visions, or if not visions then certainly profound thoughts as i while away a frigid eve waiting till the long dark gives over to the struggling dawns of winter.
Very nice post you've put up. I like it a lot.
ASW,your welcome!! My home in North Dakota,before I lived in Virginny,was wood stove dependent almost entirely too,so I know...some woods burn "sweeter" than others too.We are fortunate that the owls come around too,in the yard....aye,I call them visions.....
I hope to have a house some day with a fire place. I guess they are not too popular here in the desert.
Dol you do outdoor ones,though?
Of course! In the summer, we just keep them small and sit aways back. : )
STARS are amazing I bet in the desert
