Firebird Is Coming

A friend of mine, a small-business owner, insists the world is burning. And it is, I suppose, what with the economy and all, but then the world is always burning, one way or another.

Here at Holy Embers we like the glow of fire, especially the sea of flame that welcomes you at dawn, as the red sky did this morning. But my favorite fire is that of the burning bird at Phoenixville’s Firebird Festival. The fifth installment of this annual community ritual happens this Saturday, December 13. If you’re local, or even if you’re not, head on over and join those who have helped pull a failing steel town from the ashes and forge it anew. You can find the schedule of events here. (Note to friend: it's free.)
