The Annunciation of the Frost

December 10, 2013

“I wake to a glittering world,
to the annunciation of the frost.”
—  Stanley Kunitz, from “Journal for My Daughter”


It’s been cold, but clear, here in Seattle for the past week.  I woke to frost on my car windshield.  The cold immobilizes me.  It must be a sign of my old age that I do not want to venture out, but instead burrow under throws and quilts on the couch where Jellybean can purr like a furnace on my stomach as I read my books.

    I certainly don’t enjoy the cold the way I used to. I admire the photographs from the north of snow and ice, but I’m not sure I’d be willing to tromp out for the sake of similar photos. These are lovely!
