Today is beautiful

Today is beautiful.

The temperature is minus ridiculous degrees (Centigrade not Fahrenheit).

The sky is crystal and the wind  bites like a shoal of starved piranhas.

A daytime half-moon hangs like a ghost in the sky.

People hunch themselves up against the cold,

but it is the wrong approach;

you should open yourself up to it,

draw your shoulders back and lift your head.

It is only weather.

It was on a day like this exactly five years ago that my wife left me for my best friend.

I still miss him.
