As a southern California native, I have not yet outgrown my fascination with snow, and I hope I never do. So, I believe the first snowfall of Whitworth calls for a moment of reflection:
“A snowball in the face is surely the perfect beginning to a lasting friendship.” –Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
“Well, I know now. I know a little more how much a simple thing like a snowfall can mean to a person.” –Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
“Before you love, learn to run through the snow leaving no footprint.” Turkish Proverb
“I love snow, and all the forms
Of the radiant frost.”
–Percy Bysshe Shelley, “Song”
