Mundane Monday: Fire

A few years ago evidence was found that humans have been using fire for a million years.

A million years.

A million years of warmth.

A million years of cooking.

A million years of fires…fire

… and those moving flames are still captivating.

You would think a million years of experience ought to turn something mundane. Or, more realistically, a winter’s worth of fires in the wood stove, but I still get stuck watching the flames. Thanks PhoTrablogger for hosting another Mundane Monday Challenge!

  1. Gorgeous image! I love watching the flames as well…we have been eating more by candlelight lately, and it makes everything seem more peaceful and elegant…even grilled cheese! 😉

    Fire is fascinating. Watching a camp fire, just a pile of old wood, or an old shed! Why is that?

    Oh, again I love that perspective. I too have always been drawn to a wood fire. The smell but the mesmerizing dance is what really captivates me. A million years.

  7. Oh I’m just the same with fire and flames….it’s a great mindfulness practice to sit with the shifting shapes and colours…I find the more I look at fire the more magical it seems!
