"Sending me so far away, so far away."

Bitter cold here. I'm not sure how much snow we got yesterday and last night. A few inches. Currently, it's 17˚F, but the windchill is at 6˚F. However, the sun has come out, at least for now. There may be mores snow showers this evening.

Today would have been David Bowie's 70th birthday.

I sat here yesterday trying to find the opening paragraph of the Dancy story. Ironically, as unhappy as I have been with almost all the Alabaster comics since after the original Wolves miniseries, this particular story would be a lot easier to tell as a comic. Not for any reasons that people might expect. There are no action scenes, for example.

Let that be cryptic, Caitlín.

I have this photo from last night, after midnight, looking down at the street from the front parlour:

Resistance, Peace, and Compassion,
Aunt Beast

I really like the tree/snow photo. I live in a very small town on the north coast of California, and we have no streetlights (or traffic lights, or sidewalks). I miss tree and leaf shadows like that at night.

I actually hate these streetlights. They replaced the old ones with horridly white/blue new LED ones this past summer. The old ornage glow of snowy nights is gone.

Yes, the orange lights! I was thinking these were so white, it looked almost like a black and white photo. I miss the orange lights, too. I remember their glow on the low clouds over the city I grew up in.

Lovely. Love. Beautiful photo. I hope your muse is more malleable soon.

That's a beautiful shadow tree you have there.

For what it's worth, I've really enjoyed the three Alabaster series. I'm sorry they haven't been more pleasant to work on.

Damn, that photo is everything! Great shot!

It snowed over the weekend here in NYC on Friday and Saturday. It was 20* outside today. It snowed a lot in the Southeast.

I find that picture unsettling for some reason.
