Fire.

FIRE! Fire in the grill, that grilled the corn, that grilled the beef, that grilled the pork, that grilled the sausages, that grilled the fish. Fire, beautiful fire!

FIRE! Fire that launched the Roman Candles, that pushed the glittering sequins of rocket spew across the sky, that heaved great bombs out of mortars to sail up and detonate and rattle our windows!

FIRE! Fire in the belly from three or four glasses of good wine and a few hours of good conversation.

And now rest.
