I went to high school with Kelli. I wouldn’t call us friends in high school: I was a nerd and she was a year ahead of me and, well, kinda wild. We connected a few years back on Facebook and found that we have more than a few things in common as adults. If we lived closer, I’m pretty sure our families would hang out together.
But, we live several hundred miles apart, so we just enjoy each other’s writing instead.
Every once in a while, one of us turns an especially nice phrase. Today it was this one:
The starkness of the snow illuminated against the dark winter sky appeared in the bedroom window like static on a TV and added to a sense that nothing was happening anywhere else in the world at that moment.
