For the Goat Man


                            ... reclusive and quiet / known only as the goat man 

     ... we ski in the snowy woods past his cabin / stop to listen

                                               ... from a single window lit by a single lamp / Pavarotti in moonlight

    1. It was a good lesson for me ... Yes, being snowbound in that little house might be fun.

  2. Sounds like a pretty nice life, tucked into a snug little house listening to Pavarotti! And I do love the photo.

      Thank you so much.
