a pause for snowflakes
The first snow fell yesterday. Lasted a minute. Later or before, pouring rain. I’m nursing toothache, earache, headache. I’ve been to the doctor, the dentist, and Cub Med, I mean, WebMD. The dentist says it is a jaw shift, caused by clenching the jaw in sleep. Who knew? All I’ve known is every morning for a year, I’ve woken up with a stuffed nose. I blamed it on allergy, on sea level after altitude. I’m good with heights, but get queasy on boats. Except ferries. Ferries I love. Notice, this blog is just writing itself.
So, I’m in some pain, and I’m refusing engagements, and it hasn’t snowed, and the writing is hard, but life is still pretty good. I went to the coffee store. I spoke with my parents. I petted a beautiful young lab. I got a humidifier. And that moment of snow fall, that was joyful.
