Here there be snow dragons
...and after the blizzards the snow beasts arrive.
They come from the east, their snowy exhalations steaming in the cold air...
...and slowly they progress, hissing down the drive...
...closer, closer, closer until their growls deafen your ears and jack-hammer in your bones....
"We are--each of us--dying; it's how we live in the meantime that makes the difference."
"It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived!"
"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
