'It's my snow"
And the weight on my hat lightens.
-Kikaku, trans. by Alex Kerr
I have been enjoying following several beautiful blogs by friends, family and strangers this year:
(soulemama, PhilOlogy, and Life in Colour) and recently I have been missing keeping my own record here. My paper systems (ahem, I use the term "systems" lightly) are always so haphazard and difficult to maneuver. I like the clarity and linear nature of a blog, even while lamenting the slow death of cursive and the general unstinting shift from analog to digital.
So, I am moving back again to naming my own snow, the soft quiet white noise of my life, observed.
