Fire is one of the four classic elements (along with air, water and earth) and it has, throughout history, been connected to qualities of energy, assertiveness and passion. And, it has never seized to fascinate us.
We all get the burning sensation through our systems when we are enraged or furiously angry at someone or, conversely, the hot sensation of passion which is often experienced in connection with pleasure. This element poses such diverse qualities! Excitement can be had from watching a fire burn, the flames gaining strength, the orange, yellow and red glowing of everything it consumes. Fascinating and scary at the same time.
It is my pleasure to present the 30 best fiery innovations that have burned thei rway through the blogosphere and landed here.
