"all the white horses..."

I was (am) far more excited about the cold weather than the World Series victory -- because I am made of cold cold fail.  I'm not particularly into sports, and I'm always more into the Sox/Yankees rivalry than I am the World Series itself.  And I was even more detached this year than I was in 2004 when I was at least awake and on the computer for the games -- switching between paper-writing and mlb.com.  I have moments of wishing I were actually in the fandom, but I just don't care enough to actually learn about the players and form opinions.

[This date 2(!) years ago, traces and I went to the MFA and it snowed.]

6:45am: 33F feels like 27F
I considered actually wearing my real winter jacket, but as it turned out my hoodie was just perfect (worn over my gym t-shirt).

elliptical, interval program:
1mi @ 11:13min
2mi @ 22:48min
2.60mi @ 30min

8:25am: 33F feels like 29F
I walked from the gym to my office building in my sweater, not bothering to put my hoodie back on.


musesfool posted Louise Glück's "A Myth of Devotion" (about Hades and Persephone).  I adore the ending:
He wants to say I love you, nothing can hurt you

but he thinks
this is a lie, so he says in the end
you're dead, nothing can hurt you
which seems to him
a more promising beginning, more true.
