I'm writing at a favorite local cafe this afternoon. But that's not why I took a picture. Do you see the door is open?!! The. Door. Is. Open. In February. Took Mulder for a long walk. Without a coat. Now sitting in the sun next to an open door. In February. And I'm not even wearing socks. Madness! The irony is I'm writing about snow and skiing.

It was like searching for that small lost thing. She thinks she remembered where she saw it last, but it was never where she checked. It's got to the somewhere, she'd think. Then she'd never find it. But everything is somewhere. The answer had to be that simple. There must be something and then it would make sense. - The water began to boil. She steeped her tea, dunking her teabag in and out of the water. She tried to think of nothing, hoped the answer would come through the silence. She drank the tea and peered into the cup. She looked for the dark specks of tea leaves. She moved the cup into the light. (...) She peered into the cup and looked for tea leaves, divining. She looked hard, her eyes ached.
