Poetry and Photography: The New Traumbilder Book is out

Ahhh the Adventure called “Easter Bonfire”

In Germany there is a tradition of lighting bonfires the night before Easter Sunday. The really big ones are organized by the fire department, but you can also find many small ones for smaller groups of family and friends.

No matter how big or small these bonfires are big with the kids. Boys and girls alike are fascinated by fire. And the play options are plenty. You can bake your own bread on a stick – which requires patience. Or you can light sticks on fire and swing them around for cool photographs – which requires caution. … just to name a few.
