Looking into the flames of a campfire seems to put us in a sort of trance that burns away the inconsequential and opens us up to others. It is around campfires, looking into the flames, that we tend to have memorable conversations that matter, stories with messages and reminders about what doesn’t belong and is not needed. Remember the fun at the fires of one’s childhood?
Here are some resources so you can have a real fire in your yard anytime you want this summer, in a way that is safe from fear of sparks flying to ignite a fire.
These free-standing screened fire units are the safest way to go. They are also called patio hearths, outdoor fireplaces, chimeneas, and fire rings.
