May Eve

Here's Kath and me with the May bonfire behind us before our fire-walk last night. (See pic on Book Blog.) It was a magical evening. We drummed for ages until the fire collapsed. Glen, our fire-walker man, raked out the embers and tamped them down with a shovel. By then it was night-time. The full moon hung in the sky over the dim fields and the mat of fire glowed like red jewels. A wall of smoke and flame rose on either side. One by one, and then in pairs, we strode across the fiery ground and into our futures.
