We are almost to Christmas. Ah.. the delights of Christmas!...time for mistletoe kisses and for togetherness.. Beautifully wrapped packages, twinkling light..., a feast of caterpillars fried in olive oil..., Santa gifts, kids' gigles, anticipation of the incredible excitement of Xmas morning! I still have some presents to wrap, menu to plan and cookies to make. I have way too much to do and not enough time.
Getting into the holiday spirit!!. Finally, my Christmas decorating has been completed. The room already feels much cozier and warmer. "Christmas" delights.This fireplace suits the minimalist look and sits comfortably in a traditionally or non, decorated room. It is personalised with my favourite ornaments and a few family photos that retain happy memories to me. Ah, the fascination of fire!
An open fire addresses a primitive psychological need, even spiritual one I 'd say. The word focus actually derives from the Latin word focus = fire. And its contemporary sense conveys its fundamental importance. Fireplaces always have been the centre of a home, of family gathering.I am so hard-pressed (as all of us), that I need an excuse just to sit and do nothing; offensively called being lazy.
In a long cold, dark winter sitting by a blazing fire has always been one ofmy great pleasures of life. Just letting thoughts quietly rise to the surface, in an atmosphere that reflects tranquility and graceful simplicity, is thoroughly healing. The warm glow of flames - a source of pleasure for me - burning brightly in a hearth is enough to make me want to curl up on the sofa and relax.
My slippers, a good book, and tea and cake can only enhance an afternoon by the fireside. Beautifully burning logs! But if you believe in "witches" then remember, not to burn elm as you may justconjure up some unwanted visitors!
All I ever wished for Christmas
-aside from health and World Peace for all-is love!
