February 16, 2011 – Ice

All hail ice! This morning, lying in bed, I noticed it had gotten quiet. The rain had stopped. And then my apartment got very bright. The sun was blazing in, which better motivated me to start the day. A few minutes later there was a very loud rattling. I ran to the window and saw it was hailing. Small flecks of ice started landing on the fire escape and sparkled in the sun. Sun and hail at the same time. It was a nice, brief fleck of winter.

I lived with winter, real winter, for years. I’ve lived in some pretty snowy places. I do not miss winter. But I do love paintings of winter. So today’s piece is about just a little bit of winter, a little bit of ice.
