(I'm hoping that possessive & indefinite articles don't count. If they do, I'll try again)

As the snow falls, I walk the path around Belmont Harbor. Boats are docked in their home for the winter, months from being released. I do not wear headphones or listen to music. The tink, tink, tink of ice moving against itself and the docks, the crunch of my feet in the snow, and the whisper of the snowflakes coming down are my soundtrack. The cold of the wind penetrates my clothing, layers atop layers, shirt, sweater, coat, sweatpants under jeans, boots over socks over booties- I find that I do not mind the chill. Here I am at peace.

Thanks! Walking around Belmont Harbor in a snow storm is actually something I used to do when I lived in Chicago.

I think I managed to keep all the adjectives out of this. :D
“I can’t,” he said. “It’s not what I do.”

“Well, what do you do then,” she asked, raising an eyebrow in question.

“I’m not sure,” he replied, sitting on the stool by the bar. “I go out and do what I do but I cannot put into words what it is that I do.”

She blinked. “That is not very…”

“I know,” he agreed.

“I can tell you what he does.”

They looked at the man in the doorway.

“What does he do,” she asked.

He pointed at the boy on the stool. “The boy makes trouble,” the man said.
