Igniting another precious tiny indoor bonfire and the basic elemental joy never fails to work it's magic on me, with this one the workshop is now smelling gloriously heady, like I've had the hells angels round for a tea party. Albeit not solely for the beautiful aroma, space, consider yourself thoroughly cleansed.

This stuff also needs to ward off the damn creature that's been buzzing around me, stealing my precious rhesus negative.

A dirty great lump of palo santo, smoking away in a Raku test pot from a couple of weeks back.
