Gold

Tomorrow is December. How'd we get there?

It's the season of earbud wires frozen stiff and yellow lights wrapped around the bottom halves of saplings. Finals, the week after next, are just close enough to loom, review packets like tests of tormado sirens on sunny days. The morning is as dark when I leave the house as it was before daylight savings time. My cutting-edge love intrests are worn down like golden-brown beach glass.

I've been in a curious equlibrium between being astounded at being in the present and just being in it. If time flies when you're having fun, lately mine has slowed down a lot. Einstein might say it's me, speeding up. I'm no Einstein. I say that winter is colorless and bitter cold.

Here in Australia it's the season of melty soft earbud wires, sweaty ears and kitschy multi-coloured, multi-shaped, multi-function light displays with fake snow covering people's houses to win the local lariest lit-up loser award... okay, I'm just bitter because I'm jealous. I WANT TO PLAY WITH PRETTY LIGHTS...

I don't like christmas.

How? After toiling through a long month of NaNoWriMo, dear.

Cheer up. It's the season of softly drifting snow and vacation weeks, too, y'know.
