This morning,
I opened the door.

My car was covered with a light layer of snow.

All day,
the world outside the school windows was a delightfully gloomy picture.
The clouds were promising more.

This evening,
I walked through a soaking blizzard.

My hair got wet. My coat was speckled with snowflakes. I started to sing.

I'm currently cozy in my house. The prospect of a world washed in white makes me giddy.

It comes, leaves a memory, and then flies away quickly; I am unable to catch it and save it in a jar, poking holes through the lid to give it oxygen. 

I can't set it on my shelf and look at it, waiting for it to move or try to escape. It merely comes when it chooses, giving me an hour here, a few minutes there. 

I laugh with time; I flirt with time. I lose track of it, another quality that makes it impossible to capture and protect. I am constantly running out of it; my supply runs dry and life gets harder. It's like... a best friend who I haven't seen for a week or two, or when I go a whole day without seeing my baby brother.

Do you have any time on your hands? And if you do, would you lend me some?

this blog lives at a new address.
I like it.

It seems more relevant to the blog and less...every-other-address-was-taken-so-i-just-used-a-random-mashup-of-words-ish.
