Winter Sleep


The cold competes with the rain. The Christmas lights in City Centre are still up, but aren’t lit at night anymore so they loom above the streets like sad skeletons. Mince pies are no longer advertised in the markets. Snow no longer blankets the sidewalks, ice no longer covers the Canal or the pond at St. Stephen’s Green. The swans are back, swimming peacefully, and the buses run. It’s post-Holiday Winter in Dublin; gray, chilly, damp and restless. 

Waiting.

    Looks a bit like winter here in the Detroit area…kind of a post-holiday hangover with the gray weather.
