I hesitate on my post title, because I think, “does anyone really care?” Yes, I know people care.  People care too much. Not about what am saying, but they care too much about what everyone is saying. I care too much about what you and them and they are saying.

House Crush : Color

I confuse my seasons.  When it’s cold and the ground is covered in white outside, I tend to crave a little color inside.  Maybe it’s my mind remembering summer.  Green grass that cushions and carpets the ground.  Pink petaled flowers that find themselves home to the fairies.  Blue skies that make me believe the ocean is above me.

Today, the ocean sky has gone grey.  All green is frozen in a deep sleep, and a crunchy white snow is sticking to the ground like glue.  This is what I see outside my window.
