A simple examination of title punctuation. No exclamation point, because I'm not a big fan of snow. I liked to play in it as a kid, but now I have to drive in it. No question mark, because I'm not really surprised. It's the end of November in Massachusetts. Whadya expect? No period, because there really is no emotion conveyed with a period. It just ends.
I am a fan of the ellipsis. It's kind of pretty. Three little dots side by side. It reminds me of polka dots and indicates that something was left out. That there is more to come. Well, snow...
Yes. Snow. We had our first snow today. The first snow of the season is kind of exciting in that it has now happened. Today, November 20, 2007, was the first snow that I've seen here in Quincy. I'm a big fan of marking the first of things. My first bread baked of the season, etc. What about you?
I don't know if you can see the snow in the picture, but the flakes were really big and coming down strong and steady. Quite pretty and enjoyable, because I was watching them from inside. Compare to this picture from the summer. Sigh ...
I'm thankful for music. It's been a part of my life since I can remember and I'm loving all the new ways to find it online. My mom said that as a baby, I liked the song Get Off of My Cloud. I think that was the song. Or it was some other Rolling Stones song from around the same time. Anyway, my latest music find is Project Playlist. Create your own and check out my Playlist here or on my right sidebar. I am loving it!
