daily bliss: thaw
Today was above freezing, and the layers of snow and ice began to melt. I sloshed through puddles and even walked on bare grass down by the lake! Large and poweful waves crashed up against the icebergs, throwing up plumes of water and chunks of ice like so many diamonds. The air smelled...fishy...not usually the most desired smell, but mid-way through a long, harsh winter, even the smell of dead fish is an antidote to the blank, barrenness of winter.
