Elég, nekem.

Budapest, you looked beautiful today. You had your wintry face on with the clouds hanging in your eyes, and you Dr. Zhivagoed brilliantly with those perfectly perfect snowflakes timed and sized as if from a cinematic snow machine. Did you see me this afternoon, in Cafe Kör, batting my eyelashes at your neoclassical facades? I was asking myself why I seem to think that you aren't enough for me, why I pine for more. Why I insist on regarding you as merely a comely backdrop for drunken kisses. I know I am vulgar in those moments. Flitting in and out of taxis, hanging round the neck of some boy. But you are not the backdrop. You are the intrigue itself. And I am better outside of the taxis, away from the boy, walking on my own, chin upturned, angling for building belvederes.

Tonight I stomped through the snow of Szabadság Tér. Thick virgin snow. Mine to mark as I would. So I made bold, solid, full-footed prints. No doubt that I was there. No doubt that this girl from Florida was making her way in this great city tonight. Too big for my small body to contain, so much for my feeble furtive consciousness, you are, Budapest. But I am fixed on you, you are a part of me, as your snowflakes melt into my hair.

You have a beautiful way of ending your posts with a poetic idea. Melt snow melt, into Audra!

Thank you darling. I'm glad you approve. But really must get a hat, I've decided. Has it been snowing where you are as well?

I dont think it snowed here. If it did it was while I was at the PC downloading photos and writing stories, so I wouldn't have noticed. In general it's been a very late and mild winter in North Germany. Not much snow at all. More like rain. One below zero week will probably kill our car battery.

Like snow-stomping myself. Also, really like your blog. Which is why you have been nominated for Hellman's Hottest Blogger. Come over to my place for a peek at the obscenity of it all. Bring some unidentifiable eastern european stew.
