I want to wake up with the blankets wrapped around our naked bodies. The whistling of windswept snow outside is proof that we will not be going to work today...

Likely, we will be trapped indoors all day. We will sleep a bit longer, wrapped in each others arms, feeling each others hearts beat.

We awaken to the electricity going out, and the furnace shutting off. Immediately, a breeze fills the air, and we become aware that the house will not stay warm for long...

I need to get up and start a fire....While you lie in bed, I prepare a blanket and candles on the floor in front of the fireplace.

The blinds are open. Yet you cant see the street because the snow is so falling so furiously.

As the fire begins to crackle and warm the room, we just lie on the floor holding each other... never quite making love, never quite needing to...

We just hold each other and listen... We think about our lives together, and the future that we have dreamt about. We lay in each others arms as the snow falls....

We realize now that the future we had dreamt about... is now the present.
