Fourth of July

4 Jul

Sin posted the other day about Canada Day, so it seems only right that i should do the Fourth.

Minimal fireworks here due to the hot, dry weather ~ the professional ones are still on, but the neighborhoods are more quiet than usual.   The fire department has asked people not to do their own, and some folks are apparently listening.

Plenty of fireworks inside the house though.  Sir and i are setting off our own pretty regularly.

There’s not usually a big bang noise with them, just little explosions of joy inside me.  And Him, i think.

O, wait, this was supposed to be about Fourth of July.  Real fireworks and such.

Everything is created from moment to moment, always new. Like fireworks, this universe is a celebration and you are the spectator contemplating the eternal Fourth of July of your absolute splendor. 

~~ Francis Lucille

Hmm, that’s not really about fireworks, is it?  How ’bout this:

“I often use the word “joy” when describing fireworks. It is a considered word, deliberate in choice. Not just amusement, entertainment, astonishment, but joy. Our art makes us all into children again for a while. We become one in our experience for the moment; lost in the sound and color and light. We see large forces, stronger than we could ever be, yet beautiful in their effects. Sometimes violent, sometimes restrained. Delicate beyond imagination at times, coarse and rude at others.”
~~ Bill Withrow

 And that could be all about kink, couldn’t it?  And we won’t even start a discussion about freedom…

Happy Fourth of July!

    I love the quote by Bill Withrow. I was thinking something like that the other day watching fireworks. All that. He says it so well. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy 4th! Loved the bit about internal fireworks. 🙂 We had our own display about 2am this morning and hope for more this evening. 🙂

    As for actual fireworks… when we lived in England many years ago, you could buy sets of inside fireworks. Mini fountains, sparklers, etc. They were great, and not as smokey as you might think. Oh to have a small set of those. 🙂

      Hi, Wordwytch,

      Yep, internal fireworks are actually the best kind.

      Inside fireworks though? How cool ~ i think. I tried to google it, but ended up with lots of info on house fires and explosions instead. Not so cool. 🙂 But I bet that was super neat.
