Cottonwood Fuzz

I'm going to move away from class for a while. It's always a bit unsettling for me when I get really intense about (what I see as) an intellectual problem. Shouldn't I have a bit more emotional distance? Wouldn't it be more normal to focus less?

The air is full of cottonwood fuzz, floating on the wind and shining in sunlight. For the first time in days the sky is blue.

Maybe it's normal to turn inward and focus during dark weather. Whenever Patrick sees a dinosaur built out of of pieces of scrap metal sitting on a lawn in the country, he says, "Long winters."

This applies to anything large built out of scrap metal: cows, human figures, giant birds...
