I’m finding comfort in the small things because the big things are too overwhelming. My mom knitted me these toeless stirrup legwarmers in gradient yarn that is called “Glacier Bay” (Allison power colors, definitely). I have been wearing them around the house ever since they arrived. I am drinking hot cocoa. I’m watching Ro’s hyacinth bulb grow in the warmth of the Zen Apartment. I’m writing more. I’m trying to stay on top of my laundry. The small things are little nudges and reminders that February can be a rough month but that there are better months ahead.
