I has just stopped snowing again. And to think, at half seven this morning I was driving back from the bus station in Seattle and the sun was rising and the mountain was out. The rising sun backlit the Cascades purple peaks with livid pink streaks. It was all I could do to stay on the highway while giving the tree silhouettes, birds in flight, and Mount Rainier their due.
It’s astonishing- I’ve only been back in the states 2 weeks and have already driven 200 miles ferrying family around. In the midst of this, I’ve been enjoying the comforts of home. My mother and I baked banana bread together, I taught myself how to knit backwards and otherwise am generally enjoying being high and dry, safe and sound, hale and hearty… upon the steps of the Blue Lion. -Courtesy of The Pickwick Papers
