|hmmm.. what a lovely read. I am very well aware of guided imagery - for many reasons, one that I teach yoga, but have used it often in my life.
This is very well done, and yes I was right there along with you in your travels. Very sensual, I could feel all the sensations from bitter cold to the warm breeze touching me deeply inside... wow
A couple of typos and suggestions.. if you are for it ( just can't help myself)
.... It has snowed, again. this sentence seems redundant too me as you just said in the previous line that it is a snowy day
..... You drive carefully over the slippery patches of frozen goo that clings to the car's fenders like a mud flavored icee. ... since patches is plural, clings should be cling and ice s/b ice
..... you are a huge fan of the 'comma' but... haha.. you have quite a few too many. I am no expert but in a sentence for instance just like the very last one, At this instant, you can imagine no happier place - you really do not need it.
You write like me, you like to combine a lot of thoughts without using and - my editor of my novel is having a hay day with me right now about it and insists that I am wrong... waa... so when I find out who wins, I will let you know, but I think it will not be me.
Lastly and this is petty and probably just a matter of how this was originally typed and transposed here.. there are a lot of extra spaces between sentences and a couple between paragraphs.
Other than that... great read.. wish I understood cars and I would read more - and would fix my own car which is poochy right now.. but will see what else tickles my fancy in your port
