Each night my family has been putting our fireplace to use. Every night there would be flames crackling. Colors and shades danced before our eyes. I would sit down, mesmerized by the burning wood. I just would lie down and be overcome by warmth and filled with heat. A book would be welcome then, to just sit and read, the pages glowing red and yellow. We have had fires like this before but until now I never realized how much it is to sit there, flames dancing in the center of your eyes.
