Our ancestors used fire to cook their food, heat their homes, give light to the darkness, and keep the scary things away at night. It was tended and fed – like the other precious things of life – the children and the gods. Today, we still use fire for all the same purposes. Today, that fire most often runs through copper wires. Though no longer the open fire of the past, it continues to feed us, light us and keep our fears at bay. Humans and fire – still we live and travel together on a shared path. (Steve Watts)
