"Oh, hello Blue Mirror." "Hi, Red Clock. What´s up?"
Last week a lot of snow fell. And so did this week. It is not so usual here, in the south, to have snowdrifts at the end of the February so we seized the opportunity and walk outside a lot. The weather was quite nice since today (today it was raining in the evening), the sun was shining, there was a lot of powder snow, the trees looked like from the fairytale. What else we could wish for?
On Monday and Tuesday the water pipes were changed in our house. Just part of them, but it was still quite uncomfortable.
The other days I read three books. I slept just a little (as I was reading those books and couldn´t stop in the middle of them). I visited a friend of mine (long pleasant chat). I worked.
And I realised how much our sight can deceive us. I visited my sister and Smallone last two weeks a lot (support is support, and once you decide to be the buttress you should hold on). Once I went there in the morning. The day was grey, no sun. And there were lots of new snow on the ground. One thick unbroken layer, no footmarks, no sidewalks. So I was walking through the white flat land and I started to feel a bit dizzy - I had to stop focusing on the ground.
There were no shapes (remember no sunshine or any other light), everything was white (I was going a bit up the hill so the white colour was really everywhere in front of my eyes), there were no trees or any other significant point I could focus on, and I realised how difficult was to persuade my mind that the ground was not going upside down. Quite a weird experience.
