-Angela Carter, Nights at the Circus
I must say, I'm much happier now that we have snow on the ground. It may be a nuisance and makes me look a fool on the way to the mailbox, but everything is so much brighter. There's nothing like waking up at dark and the snow still reflecting light into your nest.
In other news, I heard this story on NPR the other day driving home from work. So fascinating! Especially being one who chronically gets taken advantage of and not being money savvy, I learned so much. Not anything I normally talk about, but I thought I'd share the wealth. Give ear hither.
