And miles to go before I sleep/ And miles to go before I sleep. The pentameter of Robert Frost is a lullaby to winter, the journey into a darkened wood that passes farmhouses and lamp posts without relent, a cadence, a rhythm that in itself charms you into the sense that all is well, and all will be well. I am tired of the cold, and yet, in the groove of survival. Bread baking is a part of that groove.
