There is something immensely pleasing about this and I wish there was a way to bottle it up and send it to you...

It's nearly midnight and the generator is humming faintly about 20 yards away. As the rain sprinkles intermittently on the "tin" roof frogs and crickets can be heard even further away in the dark...

I have a few dim, yellow lamps lit (almost like lanterns) and although there is a cold breeze blowing around my ankles the floor boards (rough-sawn hardwood almost 3 inches thick) still seem warm...

There is a dog idly gnawing on a bone in the corner (Oops, now she's parading around celebrating the fact she's captured one of my socks) and I think only a rough stone fireplace could make it more complete.

It's magical... well, almost...
