A winter's walk

Yesterday afternoon, feeling completely overwhelmed, I ate a chocolate truffle, drank a glass of milk, threw on my coat, hat, and mittens, strapped on my camera and set out on a walk. Destination, unknown. Just meandering through the park and downtown and back through the neighborhoods. A few fat snowflakes floated through the air, like lost ashes.
When there's so much to do and think about it's good to get away for a little bit and gather some fresh air.
