Autumn Fires

100 Bonfires always remind me of fall.  The big bonfire before the homecoming game.  Sitting around a bonfire telling stories.  Ghost stories around the campfire.  All these things remind me of autumn.  I just never got the chance to run around them naked, what about you?  Do bonfires remind you of autumn?  Have you ever run around one naked.
Autumn Fires
Robert Louis Stevenson (1913)

In the other gardenspic28
  And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
  See the smoke trail!
Pleasant summer over
  And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
  The gray smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
  Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
   Fires in the fall!

Joe: The fires should be referring to the candles on your cake. Happy Birthday buddy!

Actually, I have been lucky enough to be at a naked bonfire, many times actually. There's a group of us that are part of a much larger event that enjoy naked hot tubbing and saunas, so we build them every year in a secluded spot and enjoy nature at its finest. The bonfire burns 24 hours a day for the 4 days of the event, and the hot tubs and saunas are stoked constantly. It's pretty awesome. If you ever want to go, let me know, we're allowed to bring guests as long as you behave yourself!

And it's your Birthday! Happy Birthday!

Peace <3
