Because

Because we need to read a good poem today about snow.

From Jared Carter's 'Soltice,' a villanelle
...
Softened by drifts of newly fallen snow,

the wind can barely gather strength to flow
along the garden path. Shrouded in white,
awakened by the cries of distant crows,

a single branch springs up, and throws off slow,
metallic flakes that seem to freeze in flight....

Because we need to read a good book today, Thug Notes is here to summarize. "He got his own problems, and the bitch IS one."


Because we need a new quote today and I just read this one from Rebecca West. (H. G. Wells described “her splendid, disturbed brain.”)


Because hearing kids sing makes us happy. And they are singing again with A Great Big World.
