On White

I heard my mother knocking on my bedroom door.
"Dina...Dina, did you want to wake up?"
"Yes." I said. Apparently my mouth wakes up before my mind.
"Because I heard your alarm go off earlier."
9:33. I had set it for 9:00. Stupid optimist.
"Um, I'll sleep until 9:45."
I ended up getting out of bed somewhere around the ten to ten area.

I walked dazedly to get my bathrobe and while doing so, turned around in my room until I was facing the window. And out of the window--at the snow on the ground.

The truth is, I think scientifically the snow would be categorized as "flurries that just didn't melt." But you know what? I don't care. There's whiteness and the whiteness is on the very hard and very bare earth. And that's enough for me.

Have a great Thanksgiving.

But what happened after you walked dazedly to get your bathrobe and while doing so, turned around in your room until you were facing the window. And out of the window--saw snow on the ground?
