Claude Debussy and powdery snowfall! The fireplace’s going, although it is electric____but it gives the warmth___without the crackle___the illusion. But lugging wood would not work for me. I have thought of gas one day?
Now? A snow-globe world outside the picture window! With slow-moving traffic, a dump truck sanding____folowed by a long string of many big trucks and other vehicles?
Ahhhhhhh____ I see! The world will slow down today and perhaps traffic is rerouted this way now the bridge new, wider____. There was a fireman going by earlier____. This feels wintery, tomorrow the weatherman said it will all go away.
I think I will turn the tree on and find a warmer sweater. One of my new turtle necks, as there is a chill even with the fireplace. Maybe it will be a good day to read, find some cocoa, and slow my body down as if it were a Sunday and not a Wednesday. Give myself permission to slow down and watch the consistent travelers going by.
I am remembering snow storms watched from the windows of my childhood home.
