My Imagination
Showed up on a White Horse



As winter stretched out before her, she knew she needed to relinquished her disdain for the season.  She had weathered the Buffalo winters of her childhood by taking quiet pleasure in the comfort of her room- spending her free moments drawing and dreaming.  But make no mistake she held no enthusiasm for snowflakes and icicles but there was not the dread or sense of oppression.

Recalling this resourceful contented child she half halfheartedly willed this child to return. 

As she watched the little white horse walk unfettered by the cold she began to feel she could too.
