All Downhill From Here?

so cool the snowflake!
melting, it tumbles seaward
and who can catch it?

Blogger's Note: I wrote this for/about a friend of mine, but since that person makes an occasional appearance here, I'll not single him or her out. At the time it was about striving to be "ahead of the curve" and always looking for the next cool thing. Now it calls to my mind serenity in the face of aging and mortality. In this case, heading downhill doesn't sound so bad.
