It's snowing again

It's snowing again. I missed the beginning of the snowfall, sitting in my room with no windows, and when I finally looked outside, the street was covered. Yes, we've heard all about Henry, but really - is that the whole reason that I have such a gut reaction to the snowfall? I see the snow and all I want to do is be held and look out the window. I want time to stop. Time did stop that night. There was a sense of stillness. We paused, and remained there, breathless.

I don't want to talk, or to fuck, or to be involved in any other distraction. I just want to sit, and to watch, and to be silent.

And that will never come.

I have a lot of memories involving snow. None involving you except maybe that one blizzard we had on a group day (and I'm not sure you were in group then). Some of them are not so good, like biking in blizzards, but most involve the quiet snow that we're getting now.

I like snows like this. There's an eirie, almost unworldly feel to it. The snow makes no sound as it wraps our world in a blanket of white; The sounds of the city get muffled. It makes a nice setting for meditation; So easliy absorbed in the quiet whiteness while slipping back to yesterdays.

My advice: Enjoy the reverie. Instead of lamenting the loss of times gone by, bring them back and let them fill you. They live again.

... and of course, you can probably also figure out that this post is at least halfway about him as well ...
