The icy sidewalks were melted this morning. And it was raining drops so fine that i could breathe them in. I went for a walk and i could BREATHE. Not that it was quite nice enough to forgive Utah for not being Florida, but still, it was so nice to have rain and be able to pretend a little. And all the trees were looking black and wicked because they are are leafless and bony now, and so they were scratching up against the sky in a nice way, and it was not oppressively cloudy but just the right amount, enough to erase the horrible, suffocating mountains and give me the illusion of SKY.
