I had no particular reason to go down to WaterFire Providence, but it was a Saturday night and one never really needs an excuse to visit and see the fires burning fiercely reflected on the water. That's the nice thing about living in Rhode Island; there's no need of explanation. Sitting at the basin I thought about being here at this time in my life. I had that warm feeling that everybody knows who I am. Each person here shares this great feeling of belonging, part of the web of memories which make up the life of RI. In this world, nobody needs to be a stranger; everybody can be linked in some way with others. Even a visitor, for visitors came here to RI for a reason, do they not? They would be associated then with the people whom were here with them observing the bright fires.
