An Argument for Heat

This past winter, a friend was at a family gathering in California.  They were staying at a hotel that included a large rock fireplace in the lobby.  My friend with with her grand-nephew, who was in the early stages of language acquisition. 

They looked together at the fire.  "Hot," said the toddler.  "Yes," agreed my friend emphatically.  They looked a beat longer.  "Marshmellows," he said, nodding knowingly. 

There's the rub in life. Get too close to the flame and you might get burned.  Never close enough, and you'll be stuck with cold marshmellows.
