smoke pits

Annually, I find myself at the smoke pits, a site where a collective, including myself and others, congregate. At the cauldrons, we engage in the act of casting our wishes and notions into the fire blaze, envisioning them as moments for personal growth, expansion, and self-improvement. While I have experienced similar settings in the past, it is within these particular smoke pits that the smokiness prevails to a heightened degree. The prevailing belief is that the intensity of the smoke corresponds to the probability of our wishes manifesting into reality, although it must be acknowledged that this wish holds little fact.
