i stepped outside at 3 pm to see a dark gray wall in the sky. it was if someone had started building it from the horizon while i was working away this morning and when i went outside, BOOM, there it was.

and the sun was obscured behind it much the way it is obscured behind the hills at sunset in the summer months. so i said aloud, "sunset at 3 pm."

i complain about winter often. i don't like being cold. i don't like it when the wind whips. i don't like feeling like i shouldn't even try to do my hair or makeup because hello? sometimes it snows sideways.

but there was something about seeing that today that made me happy.

i still don't know what it is.

today, i relish the coming of winter.

i wonder at the blanket in the sky.
