There is no place more delightful than one's own fireplace.  ~Cicero 106 BC-43BC

"In the autumn and winter months, we strongly recall the smoky burn of leaves and firewood.  Accordingly, a priority for many of us when we imagine our ideal home is a fireplace. The hearth is a symbol central to a family's functioning, retooled for comfort and leisure.  Today we come together at the hearth, and at the first crackle of fuel set ablaze, we settle into the iconic smell of cold weather—flame on wood.  And like all nostalgia of scent, we name the experience:  Home."  ~Louis Sagar, excerpt from Zona Home
