Slowly, daylight is returning to our portion of the planet,
bringing warmer temperatures and brighter days.
Meanwhile, we bundle against the frigid air, fortunate
and glad that the most recent forecast of snow
with near blizzard conditions, faltered and fell apart.
As I walked across the IUPUI campus Monday,
on my way to swim practice, I looked
to my right to see a student, leaning against
the frosted glass of a classroom building.
Even though his image blurred him into anonymity,
his brightly colored accent markers could
be easily recognized. Of course.
