My back's a bit tired and the left side of my ass is frozen from the inside out, but I found the cold, quiet of the evening a much needed end to a busy day.

I looked up to see the tops of the trees and the mountain behind seemingly glimmering from the reflection of the clouds and city lights. Amazing. It's the beauty and quiet of a snowstorm that slows me inside a bit. I'm cold, but I'm calm and that's what I really need.
