Merril is hosting Prosery Monday at dVerse today. Hard to resist. So, why? Only thing is we must use the phrase: “I prefer keeping in mind even the possibility that existence has its own reason for being.” A line in Wisława Szymborska’s “Possibilities”. Well. I did what I could with it 😉
Bundled up against the biting cold, I try to remember Charles Dickens’ quote about it being that type of day in March when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold and can’t remember the rest of it, but know it’s bang on today.
“Gah!” Terri breaks my reverie. “Why does March have to be this way? Like pick a temp, already! Be cold till you’re not but stop teasing us with a few warm days in between!”
I laugh at my friend. “You know, I prefer keeping in mind even the possibility that existence has its own reason for being.”
“What? Da hell hogwash is that? There is no reason to this season! What purpose is there for being so unreasonable? And why are we not inside by the fire with a glass of wine?”
“We had to earn it first!”
