Today’s gray gloom can’t be conquered by normal means.
Blankets and hot chocolate are no match for the wind’s creak and scrape.
Even the cats have given up. They’ve abandoned their interest in my newly reorganized guest room/office and curled up in their favorite beds.
I would join their willful hibernation if I could, but my to-do list is on the verge of collapsing under its own weight and becoming a singularity from which I can never escape.
So, when sleep is not an option, the only remaining cure for a day like today is dragonflies.
Lots and lots of dragonflies.
I feel better already.
