Quick Hits 15

Sometimes I hear an utterance or catch a quick visual of something that sticks in my mind. As this sensory input rolls about in my head, several different outcomes are possible. It might be the case that after a moment of consideration, the input is deleted as uninteresting, trivial, or too much for me to deal with. However, another possible outcome is that the input keeps demanding my attention. It somehow wants me to wrestle with it and give it more than just a passing notice. In such cases, they can end up here, in my blog series called Quick Hits.

Just before you go to bed, you look out your bedroom window at your deck now covered in several inches of snow. A perfect, unsullied landscape. When you wake up, you take another look out that same window and see evidence of footsteps that come up to your window. Clearly from the pattern of these prints, someone was there for an extended period of time looking in. How high does this register on your creepy factor?

What do you think?
