Beautiful and terrifying, yes? Thank God we had a wood delivery this afternoon, the very piñon you see here. Pointing to the mountain after we’d unloaded, my wood guy said, “This is going to scare a lot of people. My phone is ringing off the hook…” That’s because the place he cut my load is inaccessible today, rendered so by rain and snow. The thing is, all at once it’s “winter” now. Just look at that—and tonight it drops to sixteen cold degrees.
It is the season of the bitch. Best to get this out right now and let it be. I will soak my body in a hot bath and pretend to learn.
