a friday afternoon treat:
mediterranean snow

a. had a hard time leaving her snowman behind,
there were lots of cold hugs and frozen kisses  * *    *



intimacy, companionship, consolation
all to be found around a tiny cup of coffee 

and children's laughter momentarily keeping 
the difficult world at bay



a quick new year visit to england
it was happy despite all the odds,
and freezing cold.


today another christmas here at home -
and freezing cold.
now looking forward to some routine .  .    . 

a warm wish for the year to all of you *
