RAISING A GLASS, OR ANTENNAE. OR BOTH
These tasty little crustaceans are really worth the effort it takes to catch them

There is nothing I love more than sitting around a campfire with a group of friends indulging in deep conversations. The fire is the host of whatever your heart desires in communication and the level can be as low as you wish or as deep as your philosophical brain desires.
Over the years I’ve heard everything from confessions to revelations, I’ve seen business ideas spring to life and I’ve seen shows of comedy that would be up there with the best of them.
The fire seems to stimulate and hold the conversations better than anything else I’ve found and even the introverts seem to shed their guarded suits of armour and get out and verbally joust with the loud and proud. If the chatter starts to die, simply add another log and it fires up again along with the flames; amazing stuff.
It doesn’t seem to matter what the participants of the fire meeting partake in. Beer, wine, port, coffee, tea or a cocktail of all of the above, still the entertainment will go on until the fire dies.
One of my favourite questions to ask while sitting late at night watching the flickering friend among a group of friends under a sky full of stars is “what if we’re living in someone’s ant farm?”. You pop that one off after the port bottle empties and watch another open soon after as the conspiracy theorists go to war with the philosophers and the evolution believers and just sit back and enjoy the show; pass the port will ya?
