Snowy Commuter Prints

I used to be Snow White, but I drifted.
Mae West, American actress and playwright (1893-1980)

This was a morning to have a belly full of warm, nourishing oatmeal before exiting the subway station. When the train pulled out of the hometown station this morning there wasn't a flake of snow to be seen; and this was so to within a mile of my destination. Somewhere after Exhibition Park, the train and I entered a different world. Outside, my footprints left their mark among those of thousands of other commuters -- all of us marking our trail to work. The snow served to define us as a community.
