fancy water.


kinder happily samples the first batch of playground snow

it ‘tastes like fancy water.’


“i leaned out one last time and caught a snowflake on my tongue.

they tasted so good, so pure and so divine,

like nothing I had ever tasted from the sky. ”     

-shannon a. thompson

the magic is back.


the first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event.

you go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up

in another quite different,

and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?
