the world thrown into stark relief

sweet sweet sleep, sitting, walking, snow falling interminably - blanketing chaos and forcing sabbatical, perilously leaning towers of books to be read, pot roast, pots and pots of coffee, finishing projects, joan didion, curling up in mom-made shawls and monica-made blankets and quilts pieced and sewn by women who never knew me but whose handiwork still keeps me warm, and the sob-inducing way the sun's last light falls through the winter clouds onto the black and white relief of the leaf-bare mountains covered in snow.
