December 6/365 Happy Things

Let me preface this with certain facts:

  • I am reading a post-apocalyptic book right now.
  • Climate change reports are dropping daily, it seems.
  • Today is a perfect blue winter day.

I could stand in the back yard, under the gray oaks with their rattling, straggle leaves, close my eyes, breathing deeply in cold air, and be perfectly happy. I could stay like that, if time would freeze with me, forever listening to the dry rasps, the hollow wind, and the hum of the world.

When you walk in a winter woods, sudden fires ignite; the dead flowers burn with golden light.
