Ready to Fire up the Fireplace With Some Nice Pretty Fires

There’s something about fire that makes me want to just stare at it for hours and hours.

I think it’s like meditation for everyone, where it takes your mind away from all of your cares and just lets you float in those dancing flames. It’s like the flames have a mind of their own and they hypnotize you into a trance state, which is probably very good for the mind by the way. I would much rather heat my home with a fireplace than with the central heating system, but sometimes it is difficult to get wood so my lady and I opt for the electric heating instead. I used to live up north in the mountains and would simply go out to the backyard and chop up some wood from a tree that had fallen. We had thousands of trees up there and an unlimited source of fuel for our wood burning fireplace. Where I live now though, we have no trees except for the ones planted by the sidewalks along my street. I probably couldn’t get away with chopping those down for firewood as there are only a few along the whole street where I live. Imagine telling a cop that you are simply using the wood for your fireplace, I don’t think it would go over so well with him. We have a newer HVAC system in our flat now and it is pretty efficient so we don’t mind using it on those cold blustery days in the middle of the winter. I still like a good fire now and then though, don’t get me wrong.
