it’s snowing, as it has been for almost 48 hours, i think. the snow hasn’t piled up too much, just a few centimetres to provide some contrast the cool winter at home with the sharp heat of the summer i spent away. there are no leaves on the trees here, and the cold has got me sick, so i can’t smell the pine needles.
i never seem to be able to make up my mind about whether or not i like christmas; this year’s was alright, all the family being around christmas eve. we played games and got drunk and laughed a lot. christmas eve is always the real celebration here, since my sisters all go to their boyfriends’ families on christmas itself.
i finally have my own laptop again, so i can do work with my photos and update this thing as often as i’ve promised, till it ends. then i’m going to have to work real hard at figuring out what comes next; what comes next is always the problem. i should write more, i should take more photos, i should go more places, see more people, do more things. what comes next is always the problem, and even though it’s not too cold, i don’t want to go outside.
