When winter first begins to bite
and stones crack in the frosty night,
when pools are black and trees are bare,
’tis evil in the Wild to fare.
The weird turn pro.” – Hunter S Thompson
Since we spring forward this weekend, I thought I would take one more look at winter. I’m sure this has happened other times during the winter but I never saw it before. Two days ago I was walking through Bryant Park and passed by the fountain. It was a cold day.
A really cold day.
My friend Andra who is walking The Natchez Trace is having not great weather but at least she doesn’t have to deal with 18 degree weather. On her blog this morning, she was kind enough to answer i question I sent her. Check out her blog and check out her book!
It seems like weeks since we have had snow in the northeast. The weather folks are predicting that somewhere between 1 inch and 12 inches will fall from Sunday into Monday (way to cover yourselves, guys…)
Since you may have forgotten what a snow storm looks like I thought I might remind you.
Since I know that no one can read everything in a day I thought I would remind you that Andra Watkin’s novel
was released today
You can read more about it at Andra’s place (Andra Watkins)
La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty) directed by Paolo Sorrentino is an extraordinarily wonderful 2013 film from Italy. Excellent cast and exquisite cinematography. We saw it last night. Highly recommended.
The Fabulous Ice Age is a new American film by Keri Pickett seemingly about the history of ice shows in the USA. It is much more than that. It shows us much about who we (the United States) were through much of the 20th Century and how our cultural influence and thus our power spread over the globe. It is streaming for free on Netflix and you should check it out. (Full disclosure – Way back at the start of her career Keri took our wedding photos. We could not have made a better choice. As is the way of these things we lost touch until this film came to NYC)
