i love watching things change over time, especially seasonal changes over fields and trees. i've only been in this house for six months, but the rice field nearby has already gone through several picturesque looks. i have yet to get a picture with snow because i usually don't have my camera when i take my trash to the corner, which is when i pass the field.
finally the days are getting noticeably longer again, though it's still cold. recently i seem to have developed something like Raynaud's phenomenon in my toes, which is alarming. with relatively no provocation, the veins in my toes freak out and constrict, leaving my toes white, chilly, and numb. i'm hoping this doesn't happen often (never again would be nice).
