The Moonfire Faire was the first Eorzean event I experienced back when I was still new to these lands. I recall enjoying the fireworks then, just as much as I still do now. Only, at that point in my life, I was relatively alone.
How much a difference a few years makes. Now, I find people everywhere! Perhaps ‘tis a testament of how far I’ve come to realize where I am right now.
When your mind is cluttered with so much all the time – like mine is – ‘tisn’t easy to recognize that progress doesn’t always mean vast, shifting moments in one’s life. But if you can silence those thoughts, perhaps for the space of a fireworks display, it occurs to me how rare and beautiful ‘tis to have cross paths with so many amazing individuals.
