It snowed recently
We went out in it only for a moment, crunching slowly through the powdery white of our garden. A crow greeted us with a scream. We screamed back. It was a very polite conversation.
The night before, we’d watched the snow fall from my bedroom window – gentle and silent, infinitely calming. I couldn’t sleep that night for thinking about it, hoping it would stick. It delighted us to watch it fall, to watch it coat the grass and all the houses in a soft, cold embrace. I thought back to the millions of people, over hundreds of years, who have stood at their windows and watched the snow fall.
Everything was, and is, moving as it should.
