Big fluffy flakes have been flying and floating all day past the window. Big ones, small ones, always a curious thing.
Snow , a book written by PD Eastman and illustrated by Roy McKie in 1962 that I fondly remember from my childhood. As book number 27 in the Beginner Book series, I could recall it all, along with scenes such as the snow fort, the dog sliding down the snow on his tail, the melting snow man and most importantly, the attempt by the children to save some snow in their refrigerator.
“Snow! Snow! Snow! Come out in the snow. Snow! Snow!
Just look at the snow! Come out! Come out! Come out in the snow.
I want to know If you like snow. Do you like it? Yes or no? Oh yes! Oh Yes!
I do like snow.
Do you like it In your face?
Yes! I like it any place.
What is snow?
We do not know. But snow is lots of fun We know.
What makes it snow? We do not know.
But snow is fun To dig and throw.”
Looking for some outdoor fun when it’s too cloudy up top or you want to rest your wallet?
Snow shoeing delivers some soft powder feeling along with freedom to go where you want. Prepare your ego to be overtaken by the 70+ crowd and remember to soak in the quiet and stunning views. Pink signs point to some trails behind Wengen. Test yourself and try running downhill in untracked snow with your arms out wide.
As people, we keep memories to the achievements and adventures we have journeyed. What becomes of these after the next generation?
Live your dreams and enjoy them with others.
‘As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. For the wind passes over it, and it is gone; and the place there shall know it no more.’
