Ha ha, yeah, ha ha, yeah yeah, let's get together. Dance. Play a little music. Smile. Strip down to essentials. Winter has a way of slowing things down. One feels drowsy. A nasty virus takes over. Cough, sneeze, fever, sore throat, aching joints, close your eyes and dream about paradise. Wake up. Start again. Smile. Laugh. It's ok. We're in it together. It's part of living in a northern land, the joy of winter, an overpowering experience. Take off your pants and ride the metro.
