A dear friend shared a wonderful article on how the Scandinavian country of Denmark endures its long, cold and dark winters. The solution is so primal and sensical that—why aren’t we all doing it?
We are naturally drawn to fire—and each other. Fire is the breath of life, the burning of energy to make energy. Our cells do it, all of Creation is in the business of changing form, without end.
The beauty of fire is even found in lighting one or more candles and sitting around a table or on pillows on the floor. The intimacy found in sharing such a grounding experience is awe inspiring. We naturally become silent, feeling reverent—and each other.
I hope you make plans to experience Hygge with loved ones soon.
