Eternal Kindling

Eternal Kindling

Can fire be separated from its source?

Does energy released and absorbed just fade away,

or remain an eternal memory,

longer than the flame, or the heat, or the warmth of the log that bore it.

Leaving a timeless kindling lit in my soul. The recollection that warms forever.


“Go up into the hill country; bring timber, and build the house”

1 Haggai


We can do little in the world without joy.

Even tough tasks have a reward in their ending,
but we cannot sustain anything for long without joy.

It is our means of coping, loving, giving, sharing.

It is life itself.  



“let these men be repaid for their expenses, in full and without delay.”

Book of Ezra
