the drive home
Current mood: grateful
Big round moon glowing, framed in the van's sunroof.
A patch of white in the corner of my eye, still catches me off guard. (Amazing that it's stayed cold enough for the snow to stick around this long, even if it's only in the sheltered shady spots).
Snow reflecting moonlight off a mountainside.
Feeling good, watching the miles roll by.
Cypresses encrusted with diamonds, a delicate tracery of snow sparkling in glorious contrast to the feathery branches.
A lone lit window passing in the night.
A brick wall, the lightest dusting of snow still clinging to the mortar lines.
A velvet black sky, stars shining brilliantly through the frosty clear air.
A pleasant drive to end a pleasant day.
