This workshop grew out of reflecting on a wildfire that burned over a thousand homes neighboring my house and on my winter morning ritual of building a fire in my home fireplace. Fire is one of the primordial forms of transformation.

Fire has desire. It has Po’A; destruction, wonder, and utility. A fireplace is a real place for fire. The playspace is a conceptual place for play. So confusing. Well anyway I am confused. We will actively reflect on safety, risk, and rapidish^slowish transformations in our work and in our lives. Then we may make s’mores.
