Set Your World On Fire

For Project Soul Pancakes Theme: Burn A Book You Hated

 

This has kind of a hidden imagery for me. Back in January I was feeling stuck, holding on to a lot of things from the past that didn't really seem to be helping me out much. I read a stack of journals that I had kept over the years and I was so frustrated at the person that I was reading about, realizing that it was me and that I don't want to fall back into that mode of thinking anymore. So, I set out into the snow one night deep into the forest and I dug a small hole in the powder. I lit the journals ablaze (with water near me just in case!) and watched the memories and words and thoughts turn to black and then vanish. I stayed until each morsel of my past had been eaten by fire and then poured the water overtop and buried the ashes with snow. Those dragons from my past are now just pieces of soil underneath the forest canopy.
