    What is this burning thing? I grew up traveling and camping with my family and scouts. My family moved state to state every few years as a kid. In church we have a burning bowl ceremony. I camped and traveled more after I got married, more camping with kids and scouts as they grew up. It wasn't just a coincidence that after the kids were gone to college I found the community and nomadic nature of burning and rainbows, appealing. Mayhaps this article will explain more.

    Well fire has always been a primordial path to renewal ... I always look at the change in Autumn colours — you chaps call it Fall, I think? :)p)

    To me, it looks like trees burning in slow motion ...

    The wind branches swaying leaves fluttering to the ground like a waterfall. To me that flowing yet erratic visual is appealing like the blaze, it is also what attracts me to juggling, the same as the waterfall or leaves falling.
