I had fun reading your post.
Your ‘snowflakes’ remark reminded me of something I read today: “The snow, which had held off in the morning, now began, lightly as spiders, to descend. On landing, the new flakes, many-footed, stood resting on the old.” — Benjamin Markovits’s A Quiet Adjustment
“I find line after line of question marks. My finger hovers over the delete button.” — this made me smile.
