Make sure you have your hoodie and a knit cap. The world out there is cold. It is most certainly cold. We may grow up in a blanket of warmth if we are lucky. However, one day that blanket cannot be found. That is the way of the world. We have to protect ourselves. You never know where that next cold wind or avalanche is coming from. It may be just around the corner waiting for you. Life can be disappointing that way. What is life anyway? Perhaps death is the greatest reward.
I was surprised my quilt and pillow were cold,
I see that now the window's bright again.
Deep in the night, I know the snow is thick,
I sometimes hear the sound as bamboo snaps.
