The day is drawing to a close. I took a nice walk downtown. The evening was very pleasant. Snowflakes continued to drift down. I thanked God for being alive. For the beauty of this day and this night. For all my family.

It's a good night to hold your loved ones close and snuggle in. It may be a long winter.
