Snow 4

Snow 4

Anita asked me how I am chang­ing with a child on the way.
I am rooted, more, earthly.
The spot of ground around me feels like a whole lot more because I am no longer in it
alone.
The spot of ground around me feels like a whole lot less because I am no longer
in it alone.
My influ­ence on another world of life is sub­tle, unmis­tak­able, lim­ited and pos­si­bly
won­der­ful.
I am look­ing for him every­where now.
I am to be the hon­est man he finds in this world.
I am to be that man.

    Evocative snow, Stephen – from harsh winters in Dublin, Rochester NY , and Buffalo, and especially the trunk hammered with long-life flakes – the home and big yard trees on the banks of the Tennessee River -7814 Cove Ridge. I am back there…
