This was playing in my car radio as I got into it tonight.


The quiet solitude of winter echoed off the trees as I made down the white road.


The snow was falling in shimmering grains, glinting off my car headlights.


My path surrounded by hidden rocks and crystalline plants.


The hush of rubber on frozen asphalt and the humm of the engine were my only companions against the flurry and my thoughts:


darkened by winter night.
