who doesn't like palindromes?

I, man, am regal a German am I
Never odd or even
If I had a hi-fi
Madam, I'm Adam
Too hot to hoot
No lemons, no melon
Too bad I hid a boot
Lisa Bonet ate no basil
Warsaw was raw
Was it a car or a cat I saw?

Rise to vote, sir
Do geese see God?
"Do nine men interpret?" "Nine men," I nod
Rats live on no evil star
Won't lovers revolt now?
Race fast, safe car
Pa's a sap
Ma is as selfless as I am
May a moody baby doom a yam?

Ah Satan sees Natasha
No devil lived on
Lonely Tylenol
Not a banana baton
No "x" in "Nixon"
O, stone, be not so
O Geronimo, no minor ego
"Naomi", I moan
"A Toyota's a Toyota"
A dog, a panic in a pagoda

Oh, no! Don Ho!
Nurse, I spy gypsies -- run!
Senile felines
Now I see bees I won
UFO tofu
We panic in a pew
Oozy rat in a sanitary zoo
God! A red nugget! A fat egg under a dog!
Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog

season of change

season of change

I have always adored winter. As a child getting to go sledding instead of school because the snow was piled high was such a joy. As for the cold temperatures, I believe that you can always put more clothing on. In the sweltering heat of summer, you can only take so much off before you get arrested.

Lately, what I love about winter is getting to observe the landscape change day to day, sometimes even hour by hour. No scenes change as much as they do in winter as snow cyclically falls and melts. At any given moment, the same view can appear drastically different. It helps remind me that even at times of seeming stagnation, the world is constantly in flux.

Change is certainly in the air, in more ways than one. I shall leave this post about the weather. The rest is a tale for another day.
