It was -5 degrees last night.  I bought a mini palm tree from Staples an hour ago, and wondered what I must have looked like heaving its artificial green leafiness through the white snow, an unchanging grey sky as my backdrop.  I was not cut out for this weather.  But then again, is any human being?  I keep thinking about how beautiful Spring and Summer will be.  I try not to dwell on the sad current events.  I look forward to the future, even though I know the pretty seasons don’t last.  They provide the weary with a much needed snow-cease-fire.  Cease-snow?
