In Need of Warmth

It’s been a little while since I have seen you. You’ve been hiding.  I knew you were there, but I didn’t feel the need to bother you.  I am glad you were there, but I was also quite happy to let you lie.

This morning, however, with the temperature in single digits for the first time, and the fog rising off my breath with every exhale, I pulled you out of exile in the bottom of my bag. Today, red Columbia fleece you were called into action–at least until I got on the bus and the heating took over.

It really wouldn’t be fair to consider the end of the good weather Today’s Perfect Moment. So, I won’t.

About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.

    We are in the early stages of fall out here in Western Oregon. Morning fog, crisp air and blue sky.

    The ‘Perfect Moment’ should have been that you have a Columbia fleece! 😂 Those are the best!
