2. Japanese Rice Wax 15 min Meditation Candles


“Add some color in your home with these environmentally friendly candles, that have a perfect burn time for a short meditation break.

As the base is produced from rice wax and the wick with rush weed, the natural ingredients produce little to no smoke and wax drippage, making them perfect for indoor use. As they have a 15-minute burn interval, we recommend using it for meditation or to use it as a timer to sit back and relax during your day.”

5. North Woods: A Novel by Daniel Mason


This is a novel that I picked up on the last day of 2023, and still haven’t stopped thinking about.

A sweeping novel about a single house in the woods of New England, told through the lives of those who inhabit it across the centuries—“a time-spanning, genre-blurring work of storytelling magic” (The Washington Post) from the Pulitzer Prize finalist and author of The Piano Tuner and The Winter Soldier.
