Kindling is all

All you need is a few twigs

Kindling is not a problem when your habitat is savanna.

A gentle stroll a few feet from where you wish to start your fire will put you within arm’s length of any number of twigs and brittle leaves that can form a tiny wigwam in a moment.

Savannas are an enigma for they should not be a mix of trees and grass for theory predicts grass or trees should eventually win out. All the textbooks struggle for a satisfactory explanation for the balanced mixture of the two: water, competition, fire, herbivores, all of the preceding.

If you are in a high grassland or a rainforest or near the village, then kindling is your rare friend.

Hi, I'm Paul and I'm a chronicler.

I know it is a brave admission that is all thanks to the sayings and aphorisms of the Confused One. Bringing those slippery little suckers to you gives my life meaning.

Smile well, Paul
