Writing Prompt: Burnt Offerings

Image © Fernando X. Sanchez

This can be a fiction or nonfiction exercise.  I want you to think of someone burning parts of their past; objects, memories, etc.  Why are they burning those things?  If you’re pulling from your life, what have you burned deliberately, literally or figuratively, and why?

Don’t forget to share the result of the exercise in a link in the comments!  I’d love to see what this yields.
