Up at 5:30 to meet the varsity bus... Take care out there, world! Me too. Going to a wrestling tournament in snowsnowsnow.
Later: Made it home, and must say that weather.com underestimated the snow, which is starting to look quite high on the iron table out back... We stopped in the sticks and loaded up on apple cider and homemade cinnamon raisin bread and cheddar and other Yankee rural delights. Stay warm, all!
Even later: snow, now, no, O!
Sunday afternoon requests: Dear pilots, please keep my husband safe today. Dear planes, please go to the right destinations. Dear little scraper, please be enough to quarry one truck out of one mountain of snow at the airport.
Seek Giacometti’s “The Palace at 4 a.m.” Go back two hours. See towers and curtain walls of matchsticks, marble, marbles, light, cloud at stasis. Walk in. The beggar queen is dreaming on her throne of words…You have arrived at the web home of Marly Youmans, maker of novels, poetry collections, and stories, as well as the occasional fantasy for younger readers.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
