First Blanket of Snow

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland / Through the Looking-Glass

I used to work as a lunch/breaktime supervisor in an elementary school. The first snow of the year is when I miss those days the most.

I miss being with people who still see the magic in the first snowfall. I love standing in the field, with our eyes closed, snowflakes kissing our cheeks.
