Lingering Letters {a momentary pause}

Lingering Letters {a momentary pause}

momentarypause

momentarypause My guess is that you could use a momentary pause about now.

Today, the first real snow came, covering my car and streets with an abundance of powder. The first day of snow always causes great delay, and usually a few serious accidents. I drove slowly, trying to be patient.

I found myself on a support call with Apple for two hours yesterday, trying to fix a thoughtless mistake I had made. Little by little, with an abundance of patience on both sides, the issues were resolved. I thanked my southern friend who had not only done his job, but also laughed politely at my jokes and made sympathetic sounds when I told him how I'd cried when I realized what I'd done. It was a beautiful thing, strangely, in spite of the difficulty, it was a hush in the clamor.

I'm getting restless, and it's fitting. This night is long. So very long. But it's the longest one and soon the light will be peeking through, earlier and earlier. That thought deserves a sigh, a little pause, an involuntary breath.

There were a few things that I wanted to sit with in my recent reading. I hope you'll enjoy them as well.
