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
