Through the Fire

We are connected.

My child.

Myself.

My father.

My Grandfather.

My Great-Grandfather,

and countless generations before…

Through the Fire,

We are connected.

Like a portal,

peering past postmarks of time.

Back, through decades,

centuries and millennia.

Deeply written in the code of our DNA.

We find ourselves staring into the Fire.

Searching and being searched.

Through the Fire,

We are connected.

Something deep within.

Within the Fire.

Within us.

Deep connecting to the deep.

Primal, Sacred, Holy.

Familiar.

Meals, rituals, gatherings.

Sacrifices, rites, ancient memories.

Through the Fire,

We are connected.
