It snowed on Friday to the point that even making it to the bakery felt like a treat-meriting feat. Almond croissants and a slate-colored sky are not a recipe for melancholy but the following seemed appropriate.

Remember the sound? Of bullets in dead bodies? Like a shot into a rotten leg, a wet thick leg. All a man is: wet leg of blood. Remember the flap of a turn curtain in a blasted window, fragment whispering in that awful breeze: never, forever, never, forever. - Michael Shaara
