Hello Mr. Wigleaf,
It's me again. I've sent you the view out my window during the day—the corner of our split wood fence, a huge grass bush, now yellow like hay, rising in front of it, two evergreens standing imperiously to either side. Beyond this corner, to the right actually, our canoe hibernates on its belly. And behind the fence and sleeping canoe rests our frozen pond.

But now, as I write, it is night, and the window panes are black. All I see is what darkness always reveals when the light is on inside—everything here with me—books, computer, clutter, one side of my face. Of course I didn't send this to you, reflections never end up on postcards.
