Snowflakes 80 th Day 03-21

She was standing outside of the building, which was hovering eleven stories high …large and ugly monument, portraying brief history of distorted architectural design…. The night was cold and the air pinched her vulnerably uncovered face. Sophie looked up into the sky; tilting her head all the way to the back…the shower of snowflakes was making its way to the ground. She quickly blinked, releasing couple of them trapped in her eyelashes. The darkness of the sky, against billions of white flecks falling on her face was making her feel alive, but also lonely in the large cold universe. Sophie was taking a late night walk with her dog…letting him run freely ….It was  a German Pointer…quick and playful, ready to move at any moment …They both liked their walks together, giving each other space and time but still fully aware of togetherness on this little escapades…   Every night she would stop too look at the human beehive …with most of the windows brightly lighted in the colorful display of styles and personal preferences.   Sophie was wondering about the lives of other people…compiled to a small living space and holding so many different stories beyond the parameters of large windows. It felt to her, as if she was watching a strange creature with hundreds of eyes, buzzing with a busy life….interconnected but strongly separated and unaware of each other.  She was feeling a little sad tonight, missing something… or someone….The cold touch of the snowflakes on her skin, was making it real with the perception of time, moment and space working in unison. Sophie wanted to remember this moment …one of many in her life …to see if she can take a “picture “ with all of her senses and feelings to bring it back …later… Plato  was tugging at her feet…wanting to make sure she was all right…She looked at him with  a smile in her eyes and moved her head slightly to the left, letting him know it’s time to walk again.  They understood each other very well ….without too many words …She started to walk a little farther from her home, not ready to come back to her place…wanting to be by herself…to think a little and to feel  whatever will presents itself…. with no judgment or protective  cushioning.  Suddenly she heard the footsteps behind her …she turned slowly, trying to look calm and composed …The tall statue of the man was approaching her in the rushed manner…there was a medium size dog, leading the way …Sophie took a deep breath in…”I guess it’s no one  suspicious” she sighted.  “Sophie…? Is it you...? “She heard the voice, asking the question. It was her friend from University…on his evening walk. “Yes …it’s me…” she smiled and looked at the boy with curiosity. He was tall, handsome and quite popular …. never less, she was not attracted to him… Sophie had a feeling, he may like her a little more than a friend….but there was nothing she could do…Many times she would wonder, about chemistry between two people …what makes it work or not and why…She could only offer a genuine friendship…but many times it seemed, it was not enough  for someone else…  “How are you doing Toby..?”  Sophie asked, looking at the tawny Boxer. Toby waived his tail and gave her a look of “where is Plato…your dog?” Sophie looked at him and said “Plato …is somewhere here…. running around…he likes the adventure   …but always comes back…” Whenever she had a chance she would let him off the leash to roam free…she wouldn’t like to be on one…why should he..?  “On the evening walk ..?” she asked, trying to make a conversation.  “Yes…my father didn’t want to walk him today…” Allen explained quickly then asked “…and you…Sophie…? Isn’t it too cold…?” “ I like it this way…makes me think better and then…appreciate the warmth of the home…” she gave him a smile, hoping to relax the conversation.  “Are you going skiing this weekend?”  He asked looking at her … “I don’t know yet….all depends….” She said it slowly…  “It will be fun…” he insisted …” It’s our pack…going together…you could join us…there is plenty of space…” he proclaimed.  “Thank you…maybe…it’s not a bad idea….to just ski…this weekend” Sophie said it slowly, looking ahead of her … The barking sound followed the wild run of the German Pointer…” Its fine Plato…they are just friends...” Sophie tried to calm him down.  He looked at her and waived his tail saying “cool, have it your way” and was gone trying to find another mischief…  Sophie wasn’t sure if going away for the weekend was such a good idea…she had few things on her mind… She just broke up with her boyfriend…it was her decision…She didn’t  see a future for them…better now than later…she told herself…but it didn’t feel that way right now... Sophie was determined not to repeat her older sister mistakes…She watched her go through the painful divorce …full of heartache and drama…leaving everybody wounded and in pain… Sophie wasn’t dating Michael for a long time…but liked him from the first moment she saw him…They were a lot alike … full of life but not stable…like two particles  ready to burst at any given moment…She knew it was  a good match, to love each other and to hurt …even more…  So…decided to “cut it” surgically …clean and simple…easy to heal …before it will be too late…At this moment, she was not sure anymore about “easiness “of that, It felt pretty miserable…  “I will go with your group…” she surprised herself with a quick decision… “ There is only one problem…we go as a friends only…right…?” she asked looking into Allan’s eyes… He blinked few times and exclaimed…” I…I have this girl ...I like…forgot to tell you…” …” That’s great!” She interrupted and smiled with relief… ““Just wanted to help…heard what happen between you and Michael…” he said in a quick manner.  “Thank you …but I am all right…” she stated. Sophie didn’t tell anyone …she was the one ending the relationship…it didn’t matter…it was silly…but for guys to be rejected… too much of the deal…so no one knew… “ Great…then we are going” Allen smiled and looked at her…. Sophie …was not ready …for another close friendship. She looked at him with a little suspicion…” He said he likes someone else… nothing to worry about …” She whistled and Plato appeared out of nowhere…”See you on Friday” she said with a smile …”It’s way too cold …what kind of crazy people go for a walk on the night like that…” she exclaimed and winked, then looked at the Plato   and said “race you home” and she started running…

The Little Prince

"People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for..."

"They don't find it," I answered.

"And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..."

"Of course," I answered.

And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart."
