Thought for today:

‘Snow provokes responses that reach right back to childhood.’

Snow is falling and my childhood memories are evoked.

Like the winter of 1970 up in the Pennines with my Dad, when he dropped me in a snowdrift that was taller than me.

And I hit him with a snowball and he got mad.

And we went to Dinting to the fledgeling railway centre to see a steam engine (5596 Bahamas).

Looking out of the window as the world is cleaned up, I am also reminded of old Giles cartoons.

How he could draw snow as the absence of detail so brilliantly – I still have a collection of Giles annuals.

Finally, it’s nice to use a quote from Andy Goldsworthy, one of my favourite artists.

I highly recommend the two documentaries about his work by Thomas Riedelsheimer, especially Leaning into the Wind.
