When I light my first cigarette in the morning

I

Just let it burn...

In the final instance, I have only found philosophy to reward my suffering with theretofore unimagined... What? Good shit. That the answer to the world, in the final instance, is "yes." Not the answer to ME. To the WORLD.

I wrap my hands around the day's  first very warm cup of coffee enjoying its aroma while reflecting on the snow wolf before me ~~ I postpone the moment of placing it to my lips.
Perfect zen epicurean moment.

Pretty similar situation as I just read this holding the mornings first coffee in my hand staring out at the snow falling down over sweet boulevard de Rosemont, just as white as when I first set foot here last year and decided this my place.

I absolutely love that first snowfall. I love all snowfalls especially if they do not "stick", except for blanketing the trees.
Such a pristine landscape to me.
But the first one of the season is like welcoming an old friend back again.

This is a very cool, laid-back kind of ambiance.
The rich glow in the dark.














~~ though I think that smoking is "uncool". But that's just me.
