Enormous veld fires are burning in Jo'burg and the high winds are blowing the smoke all the way inside our voorhuis.

Ah, vague memories of camp fires from my Voortrekker days. Stokbrood, ugh.

I took a photograph from our balcony with the camera on night mode; the shutter was open for several seconds. It does look fiery even though the actual fires are far away.

Anyway, I wanted to remember this day as the day that Fire entered my life.
