Something ancient

I had a bad day yesterday. A very bad day. I won’t get into it just yet, but it was the sort of day that leaves you questioning everything  – the meaning of life, and so on and so forth.

Today, I really just needed to be among friends.

By a happy coincidence, it was the start of our next session of forge classes at Willowbank.

I don’t know what it is about fire… There must be something about this force of nature, that’s buried deep in our (mankind’s) past, that makes it very comforting to the psyche. In my opinion, there is little in this world thats as therapeutic as staring deeply into a fire.  I didn’t pound on much metal today, as I just didn’t have the concentration. But I can’t think of any better place to have found myself at this particular moment in time.


Therapeutic fire
