Friday, February ninth

A cool, quiet, wintery looking morning coffee muses…

It’s comfortable out here in the not so wintery feeling world. Sixty degrees is a long way from how cold it looks. Steel gray, featureless skies over a mostly monochromatic landscape.

A dog barking close. Crows in the distance. A train rumbling along as it toots it’s warning. Birds singing repetitiously, over and over again. Another dog barking, further away.

The breeze is picking up. The residual heat from my shower is wearing thin like the tank top I’m wearing. Cool gradually seeping in towards the bone as the sky brightens… just a bit.

The star magnolia out front is beginning to break bloom. Pink buds unfurling on bare branches. Spring is coming bringing winter’s doom. The battle isn’t over, but, the world turns towards summer once again.

I should probably pull the memory card out of the camera and see if I captured anything of interest on my Birthday Road Trip. The day was so lacking of interesting photo subjects I haven’t mustered the interest in working through the images.

Time for coffee and news…
