the way home





“The house was quiet and the night was calm”

~ Wallace Stevens




calm before the storm





the stillness is palpable
as a snowstorm approaches
I feel the same excitement
as when I was young



the polar vortex



stopped by for a visit
seems an appropriate end
to the month of January












0° outside today








“the comfort of reclusion, the poetry of hibernation”
~ Proust


looking forward to a little downtime
as a stormy weekend approaches
