The hot cup of tea

HotTea_150Denver aiport, very early morning. She hands me a cup of hot tea in a standard styrofoam cup. Its warmer than expected, not dangerously so, and i can feel my skin react to the heat.

The cold that seeps into your skin

I’m waiting for the car, just about 4 minutes, under-dressed in 3 degree cold Boulder and i can feel the shimmer, not quite a shiver, start at my core and start to move externally out. Its not painful but it is uncomfortable.
