Ever just wish you could curl up by a crackling fire? Surround yourself with comfy blankets, perhaps a dog or cat, sip hot cocoa or a steaming cup of tea, mesmerized by the dancing flames before you, completely oblivious to the outside world crumbling in chaos? That's where my head is at these days. I would much rather cocoon myself in warmth than face the daily grind. Cool fall breezes may have triggered the yearning, or maybe is just the simple lunatics I face daily that have triggered my need to hibernate. In a cave.
Retreat to another room to further admire the multitude of color and forms that appear in an endless array of the warming glow.
Or a simple treat for two, rustic and casual, to enjoy the autumn splendor in its full glory. Smores, perfectly browned over dying embers before retiring to a cozy bed for deep slumber.
Sigh, no such luxury in my immediate future. If only the eternal flames could light my path, perhaps life might be a bit more enjoyable in my little corner of the world.
