Snowing out, sounds of plows on the roads. The walk home from the bus was straight out of a Christmas card. Made this egg nog. Waiting for the laundry. Christmas in a new city. Thinking of old friends and acquaintances; I wonder where they are now and what they're doing, and if they remember me at all. Ave Maria on the radio. I want to call people, but don't know if I will have the words. Another year almost over.
