First fire...

The first fire of the season is an Occasion every time flames on the hearth light one more beginning. The popular notion is that the cycle of the year begins with spring. I'd hold it starts with autumn, that season of preparation when we must gather in, strike a spark of shared warmth to soften our hearts one toward another, to grow us generous and welcoming and steeled by love before the cleansing winter.
