Suddenly an adventure

It's fun walking in the fresh snow because you can be on so many levels at once, so many textures too and yes there's that sound almost like chalk on the blackboard and maybe the scratchy feeling of cotton balls on your finger but somehow soothing too. And the air, yes fresh and moist and crisp and everything feels somehow more still than usual, even the leaves swaying in the breeze it's because of all that white, gray sky too and the soft sculptures of trees and walls and grass, even.

And yes, the tiny birds chirping from inside brown skeletons of bushes, crows on top of the tallest snow-covered pine trees, even the spaces in the sidewalk that have been cleared are suddenly an adventure, new textures.
