Got hit with a late-season snowstorm last week. In what felt like an instant, the verdant greens of early spring were transformed back into the monochrome hues of winter. The mind seems to adapt slowly to winter, and reaches a point where this sort of scene appears normal, if not entirely pleasurable. But to experience sudden switch like this is a bit jarring. The consolation of course is that this is mid-April and any snow that falls now is very short lived. This knowledge motivated me to walk in the snow and experience the (hopefully) last gasp of winter firsthand. What started out as a quick hop turned into a couple of miles for which I was not fully prepared. Yet I found the cold and wind invigorating and a wonderful change of pace from recent experience. There's been a mind dulling sameness to the days as the quarantine lumbers into a second month. I feel a sense of cognitive diminution lately; my mind is just not as sharp as it was before all of this. I have more difficulty discerning what I did on any given day that if further back than yesterday. The calendar date and time of day have grown less important to me as work is a less dominant part of my life at the moment. The mind tends to lose focus with disuse the same way the physical body loses tone when not being worked. In the short term, I'm not sure this is entirely a bad thing, just different. On balance I'm more likely to act spontaneously now. So many of my photos lately fall into the category of "I've always been meaning to do that" and now I finally am. The effort lately seems to count more than the results. Anything that restores the sense of control over life, no matter how trivial or illusory, is a benefit. My winter walk happened to bring me by this old house, one I've long admired but never photographed before. This image is the perfect metaphor for my mindset.
