Winterís A Distant Memory, Alas.

April 11, 2014
For months, Iíd wanted to write about our all-consuming winter. But you heard nothing from me. Like many east coast inhabitants, I was stricken by what they call Ďcabin feverí. Although warmed by a well-stoked woodstove and an oil boiler chugging limply through the night, one feels immobilized, pitiable, and mistreated. Hard not to complain; it doesnít matter that Iím one among millions. All those comforts we take for granted are not longer comfortable. Not nice.
