We are fires

    An enjoyable snippet; loved the concept, but wished you had further explored the depths of it; it left me wanting much more of your perspective, instead of forcing me to fill in the blanks.

    -Joe Breunig,
    Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory

    souls don't burn out, they move from life to life.
