room for one

dear winter,

i don't mean to be rude. after all, you have brought us some lovely snow and beautifully soft skies over the past several months. but we've begun to grow tired of the cold, and now it is time for you to move on.

besides, spring will be stopping by tomorrow. and it will be here to stay for quite a while. there's not room for two. if you would kindly move on—we know you will return again. and when you do, we will enjoy your blankets of white and glistening seas. we will drink our spiced wine and sit in your peaceful silence.

but now it's time for some green. some rain. some puddles. some tulips. some polka dots. it's time to put away our wool coats and break out the footless tights.

thank you for stopping by and staying a while. see you in about nine months.

sincerely,
georgie

One Day I am going to send you some mula and get some of your shots, send them off to shutterfly to be blown up and put them in lovely frames in my house. Just a heads up for when I send you a heads up for some prints..you really should consider selling some, shutterfly does awesome stuff. You have raw talent. I can only imagine what you would do with a great camera and a dark room at your hands.

I truly did not mean to put heads up twice..but for the life of me can not remember what word I wanted that second time I wrote heads up. (sigh) foggy day
