Snow Day

Top photo: Our blackberry orchard

Bottom Photo: Our snowy field

Because this is snow country, BGSU rarely cancels classes because of weather. I've been at BGSU since 1987 and I can remember classes being canceled only twice, and that was just the evening classes. Today classes are canceled all day because of snow and wind. All told, they say we should be getting 8 to 10 inches of snow. But biggest factor is the wind. The blowing snow makes driving conditions near-impossible. Just a few minutes ago, I asked Allen to step outside and take some pictures of our yard. The storm is just getting cranked up. More photos to follow...

Theresa, I like the crosses in the blackberry orchard. Somehow I think of the WWI poem about the poppies in Flanders Field - can't quite remember the details and too lazy on this snowy day to look it up. Is there a story about them?

I also love the photo of the blackberry orchard. It makes me think of a snowy graveyard. I imagine that it is very silent there.

I hope you enjoyed your time off! My company has not closed, but I worked from home yesterday and am doing so again today because of all of the ice we have here.

Wonderful photographs. The picture of the crosses is haunting.

there is a poem in the cross picture...perhaps even a whole short, short story is lurking there.


I miss you.



About Me

Northwest Ohio, United States
"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death
by Albrecht Dürer

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
