Here I was, almost at the end of my 4th day, and I hadn't taken a picture of something beautiful yet!
Egads! I thought, staring at the fire my mom had just stoked. My thoughts got somewhat lost as I looked into the flames; they were warm and energetic and had a reassuring feel about them. And, tada! I realized that they were beautiful.
Also, being in the presence of friends always helps when one is sick :)
