Blizzard

Gee, I haven't been writing much here lately, have I? Not that I haven't tried, because I have. What happened though was, I just sat here for a long time, not doing anything. At last it occurred to me to push a few buttons, but it didn't work. Sure, I managed to put some words together, but they only sat there, looking at each other with dumb, glazed eyes. So I tried another combination, but those words only staggered about, bumping into each other as though somebody had turned the lights off. Then, I got up and went and grabbed a beer. Maybe that would trigger something! But all that triggered was an empty can twenty minutes later, and another trip to the fridge. Then I came back and looked at all that WHITE. So much WHITE! as far as the eye could see. It was like being caught in a blizzard. I wandered around blindly in a storm of white, waving my arms in front of me, like a marionette.
How can anything get done in that kind of situation? Nothing can be done in that kind of situation. Nothing, but to sit down and wait for the Saint Bernards.
