Just Be

Firelight will not let you read fine stories but it's warm 
and you won't see the dust on the floor. Irish Proverb

Sitting before the warmth of a fire is more of a time for peaceful reflection than the perusal of literature. Don't think about work or to-do lists, take the time to just be. That is something none of us do frequently enough these days. And if you should fall asleep, may your dreams be pleasant until you wake as the flickering flames turn to glowing embers.

If you enjoyed this post, please leave a comment. I would love to hear your thoughts.


  1. How right you are, Linda! I have sat by my share of fires and remember it fondly. It's mesmerizing. I love to look for images in the flames, too.

    1. It is very warm and relaxing, watching the flames dance. I have a lot of fond memories, too. Interesting avatar you have now.

    1. Oh, me too! Our house is 60 years old and we have lived here 30+ years. The fireplace has never been used. I guess we could have but it is still clean so I just decorate it at Christmas.

  3. Hi Linda - how very true ... and how lovely to leave the dust, while a good book is worth settling down with - Cheers Hilary
