Literary moments

There are moments when I walk around and think to myself “Wow, I feel like I’m in __ [book].” Partially because the government’s urban-planning has a slightly dystopic aesthetic, lending itself to “Hunger Games” and “Brave New World” references [see here].

At other moments, like a few weeks ago, it’s the weather that inspires. The weather had just started thawing and you could walk on patches on concrete/asphalt, as opposed to sheets of ice that have covered most of the streets during the winter, and then… bam…

In a nearby neighborhood.

I looked out my window when I woke up that morning and the first thought? “It’s always winter, but never Christmas.” Reference? The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe (C.S. Lewis). Or maybe more apt The Long Winter (L.I. Wilder). But spring is around the corner — and when the heat of the summer rolls around, I’ll probably think fondly about these snow-covered days.
