Daily Prompt: Scorched

Last February, I went to a retreat at Loon Lake in British Columbia. There was a big fire in the forest near the lake in 1868. Even though it has been 148 years since that event, it is still possible to find evidence of the scorching.

Daily Prompt: Flames

When I saw “Flames” was the Word Press prompt for today, two photos came to mind. The first is one I took in 2014. Every time I see it, I am reminded of campfires.

The second is from my 2015 visit to the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site. These flames are near the place where Dr. and Coretta King’s bodies are interred.  The memorial was beautiful and felt like a very sacred space to me.
