Jess misses snow.

(a picture taken by my friend, in Iceland)

And now there came both mist and snow,
And it grew wondrous cold;
And ice, mast-high, came floating by,
As green as emerald.
...
Day after day, day after day,
We stuck, nor breath nor motion;
As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted ocean.
...
Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink.

Alright. So I started liking poetry, just like that?
Maybe, maybe not. I guess it depends.
But just imagine that. Water in it's three forms, all around.
Water, ice, mist. That's just, wow. I mean, my favourite weather is not much different.
Ice cold, yet no wind. And those nice white puffs with every breath. <333

Last time it was that cold, was in August 2007 (I know, mid-summer, tis amazing xD), and we were on the top of Europe's highest mountain: The Grossglockner. I kinda miss Austria's mountains. Or maybe that is because I was reading through my diary, and that's a big part of what I read. I get so enthusiastic about every tiny thing, when I'm traveling. Soon, Gypsy. Soon you'll be traveling again. ~nod~ Okay, I'm weird xD
Talking about cold, it's snowing in Holland. ~pout~ I'm missing out on so much Dx It was -18°C at places, but generally between -10 and -12 °C But! Maybe it'll be even colder when I go there, next winter =D Or maybe wherever I'll go will be cold enough. ~shrug~
I have to admit: It's really cold here, too. Colder than usual winters. And houses aren't built to keep it out, so draught makes us chilled to the bone.

Aaaaanyways. Coleridge. Wordsworth. Shelley. Keats. All Romantics. Okay, so Blake isn't. Jess is totally into reading too much into everything xD Which is making me paranoid, is true. I mean, now I'm trying to apply it to everything anyone says and does. But since I know it's what I think they mean, and not what they actually mean, I am sensible about outing said paranoia. >.>; Can't wait to be done with school work and being able to read anything besides it without feeling guilty. Oh. And I still do not like Shakespeare.

  1. Ooooh! You've seen mountains in Austria! @o@ Something I'd love to do! I want to see mountains, Gandalf, mountains! <3
    I'll be sure to welcome you to Finland. x3 It's not super amazing or anything, just a small wealthy little country with a small density and quiet, drinking inhabitants. I'm not included in the drinking part though! Grr!
    Finland is really beautiful in the summertime, after all nowadayswe hardly get any snow because of the global warming. So I guess it'll be better that you visit Finland during the summertime after all, just in case. :D
    Oh and don't like Shakespeare? Hmm, I guess I have to read some of his work anyway, since they're known worldwide and stuff... I'll see if I will or will not agree with you! x3
