Around the Fire Facebook group
I love fires and the best memories have been when I have been with friends and family around the fire pit.
No TV or phone screens, work, stress, no obligations, just fun.
Tending to the fire, making sure it’s burning correctly, evenly, respecting it’s power and enjoying the warmth.
Maybe there are some marshmallows we attempt to cook, although more time than not, we end up burning.
We look to the stars and are amazed by the peace of night time and how it’s actually not as dark as you’d think night is.
We oo and aaahhh when we see a shooting star, or two.
There is no where to be, nothing to do but to sit in each other’s company, relaxed in a loving safe place.
We talk about everything and nothing. It’s is easy going, it is a time to put down the mental load, let the heart relax and we all breathe a sigh of relief, enjoying a break from life.
Although this is life too, THIS is what it’s all about. Connecting on a deep level, time with loved ones, being yourself without permission or justification.
This is where to come to be You, to learn about the Hows in life, to make deep connections and feel part of a community.
By being part of this group, I am hoping these will be the benefits you’ll enjoy:
