Around this time of year, my cable company puts on a free option of a crackling fire. It lasts for about an hour and comes with a variety of choices for music…soothing instrumental, classic carols, or just the simple sound of a crackling fire. I absolutely LOVE it and put it on often…especially since I do not have a fireplace of my own. Yet I can imagine the warmth the digital fire would produce and the gentle smell of wood and smoke it would create, and I am quite at peace.
So during these longer, colder nights, place an extra log in the fireplace, and let the calm wash over you…
