Icy

Photobucket

When I go out every morning, my eyes are crying, some kind of reaction to the air I guess. This morning I had the feeling that tears were turning to ice on my cheeks.

Somebody told me, quite correctly, today, that the end of the decade was not until 2011.
But it feels like it, doesn't it? Like it feels that September is the beginning of the year.

Imagine alors l'impression quand il fait -25°c dehors.. It feels like tears turn to ice before they even form ! I adore the cold though :)

Lovely photo. It was very cold here, and I tried to avoid the wind. I wouldn't have thought that the decade ends until 2011, but it makes sense.

This photo makes me all nostalgic for winter and snow. It's really pretty.

These tears are like condensation that runs down the cold of the window pane when it's warm inside and cold out, the clash of your warm body against the icy atmosphere.

I suppose all you can do is keep your eyes closed but then you cannot see.

Judging by this beautiful photograph it's best you continue to keep your eyes open to see even though your tears.

On prévoyait de la neige ici à Marseille aujourd'hui. Quedalle. L'arnaque de la neige...

Same here. Just came back from a walk on the sea and it's about -17C out there and very dry, I was crying right away!

I have the easiest teary eyes ever. When I was in college and had to walk across campus, I ruined my makeup everyday :(
