Fire Miles

Marvels can come in many forms—It's a shame that such a beautiful thing as this fire can also destroy so many homes and burn a swathe through all those lives. One man, interviewed by the local paper, said that the canoe he built with his dad when he was sixteen was in the house he narrowly escaped this morning.


Maybe the point of a marvel is to help us value our own lives more - to go back and build or preserve or create on that same level of grandeur.


Here's my effort for tonight.
