The rocking chair.  It is a presence in the American psyche; at least in rural America.


To me it connotes warmth, the seat by the fire on a cold, winter evening; the comfort and security of being enfolded in the arms of a loving grandparent; the serenity and peace of a quiet evening on the porch, fireflies lighting up like a thousand candles in the dark, a cooling breeze brushing aside the heat of the summer day.
