i took this photo during the first week back from winter break. i woke up early and it had snowed and when i walked out of my building down from the fire escape i immediately went back inside to get my camera. look at those big snow clouds! and those evergreens! and how quiet the town feels in the early morning! it’s kind of blurry, but i didn’t want to turn the flash on. while i was away (in Virginia) i realized how much i missed how close the sky feels in Laramie. it’s perfect weather for hot beverages (ie: hot toddies (which my cohort introduced me to)) and reading and writing. everyone’s back and excited for the new semester and new workshops and poems and stories.
