The First Snow


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”

Be inspired.

One thought on “The First Snow

  1. Oh, this brings back so many good memories of that beautiful campus when the snow fell. Deep, piled white, and the largest, scariest ice flows hanging precariously from roofs of Ballard and McMillan…. I’ve never seen icicles like that since!
    Also the popping noises of the steam heat in the older dorms, and such beauty at all the times of the year! The first snow, always a thrill.
