Snowed In

Hello Livejournal: It is the second coming of Portland's Snowpocalypse; a foot of snow and more, and bitter wind blowing. 2008 flashbacks! It's been a bundle-up-and-stay-inside month, but today required a hike to the grocery store, lest the cat go hungry come dinner time.

No one wants a hungry cat.

Thank goodness for new hiking boots and pointed walking sticks! Made it there and back in one piece, backpack re-purposed to hold cat food and wine. Wobbly legs and variably focusing eyes be damned.

Walking used to be my therapy. Entropy changes things without permission. The new Nine Inch Nails is surprisingly good.

Good afternoon, Livejournal.

    nine inch nails - field on fire

In the Dark we Whisper.

The notes ring in from 2002. I played some of them, she played some of them. Across nine years it is difficult to distinguish; those there, though: those are definitely mine.

Two songs about the heart, meeting somewhere shadowy, not quite singing the same song, but technically in key; the patterns mostly at odds when they are also in sync.

I have too many windows open. Each becomes a repository, an icon of thought. Closing them relieves tension. A suspended reality to return to.

There, now it's just two.

Can we make icons for the heart?

Do we already do this.
