my favorite

first snow 08
As B used to say in such moments: :' ' ":::"'::::: '" "' :: ' " :;

First snow. (First snow.)
Got my computer back yesterday.
Haven't written significantly since then, despite prayer promises.
Nevertheless, pretty happy.
Happy especially to be teaching next quarter.
Herald lets the snow collect on his back, doesn't seem to even notice it.
Walking in the snow with my mother.
Plans for sledding tomorrow.
More tree limbs for snow here than Chicago, but less urban contusion.
I could easily wander out about among 100 strangers every day.
I like the sound of sea-blown chimes at night in a new place; it makes me feel peaceful.
Herold looks like a big hedge-hog in this photo. It's abstractly exciting. Brrr...it's cold.
La, Herald is a hedgehog. A chubby one.

brrrrrrrrrrr, my toesies are sniffling.
