Fire Beneath A Full Moon
Sitting around a firepit on a nearly full-moon night is one of life's simple joys that never seems to get tiresome. Fire, while fearsome in its destructive abilities, has been one of mankind's greatest allies, serving to ward off predators, provide warmth and light, as well as a means of preparing food. Sitting around a firepit with others creates a strong sense of security, which in turn makes it easy to relax. For millennia humans have gathered around fires and socialized, sharing food & drink along with witty anecdotes and scary stories, On thousands upon thousands of cool late summer nights similar to tonight, people have bonded with one another through the shared catharsis of feeling safe and at ease that comes with sitting around a fire, roaring or not.
And if you have the makings for S'mores, all the better.
