New York City, November 25, 2012

★★ Wan sun and flimsy clouds vied to abandon the day to each other. Through midday, the sky was stuck on patchy gray.

The cold seeped into ungloved fingers, though not enough to make it worth digging out the gloves; condensation beaded inside the window of a dumpling cart. In the afternoon, against the trends and apparent odds, it was the sun that emerged as the winner. Or loser.

Tiny white flecks which drifted through the afternoon air seemed at first to be falling trash – paint flecks from some upper floor renovation, maybe? Packing material from a broken-up relationship? – but increased, revealing themselves to be actual snow. They were enough to bring a bit of wintery joy before they blinked out of existence again.
