Ode to snow

It snowed in Alaska the second day after I landed. And in those few hours, the whole place turned to Christmas land.

It snowed in Kentucky just now too, the day after Christmas. And in these few hours, the whole place has turned to Christmas land here too.

I guess I didn’t realize how much of a difference snow makes for me. It calms everything, like we should cancel stuff even though we don’t need to. It beckons me outside, even though it’s just as cold if not colder than before. And somehow, at the same time, it makes me want to stay inside too.
