To build a fire

The flame itself has a soothing, mesmerizing effect. So often, the conversation around a campfire hits a lull, and everyone finds themselves gazing into the glowing, crackling bowels of the fire. It seems to say, “Welcome home.”

He also mentions Jack London’s, “To Build a Fire” which you should totally read as well.
