Don't stare too long
Goin campin tonight! I need it too boy, sometimes you’ve just got to get out and play with a bonfire and burn a hotdog and play poker and stuff. Every time I go to a campfire I end up thinking about how for thousands of years they didn’t have TV, they had fire to watch. The same kind of mesmeriziation I get from staring at a TV is in a glowing, swirling, snapping, pulsing fire. There are a couple of things like that that seem to connect me (in my mind) to some guy living in 500 BC working the night watch in the mountains of Asia Minor. Or whatever. The same show is on.
