Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Last night… I dreamt I walked as a bear

Fog & snow at NeoWayland's home

Last night…
I dreamt I walked as a bear
Through softly falling snow
While fog tendrils tickled my nose
And ancient trees whispered
Secrets of deep dark Earth.

Yes, I am a child of the desert. But I am also winterborn. The desert sings to me. But winter lives in a wellspring in my heart. Every once in a while, there is a moment of weather that is Exactly Right.

I thought I knew all those times. This winter has taught me otherwise. The combination of fog and snow, I'd never seen it anywhere in Arizona before. It's close to a Holy Moment. Maybe it is because the fog shrouds the horizons. I'm used to seeing for miles during the day. I do not know. I just know…

…it was Exactly Right yesterday afternoon.

I built up the fire (Fire GOOD thinks Neo) and watched. It appeals to my carnivore side, I finished off the prime rib in the fridge. I suspect that if I had had a sleepover guest, it would have been a night of nuzzles instead of sex.


Like all things, it passes. The snow is mostly melted now. But I still have the memory.
