I selected this week’s Spark with the thought of Thanksgiving being later this week.



I can affirm that this has happened to me many times in my life, and I am grateful.

This is another of Dad Tom’s photographs. To create the circle of fire, steel wool was placed in a whisk and lit. The whisk was attached to a string and swung in a circle. If you look closely at the center of the circle, you can see the shadow of the person twirling it.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”
