It snowed a lot this week–maybe more than 18 inches. There’s a lot of white outside, but not inside the school. Bonnie’s K-1 class has been “coloring up” the halls with their artwork.
“The craving for colour is a natural necessity just as the need for water and fire.” — Frenand Leger, “On Monumentality and Color”, 1943. Extra special thanks for all the inspiration to my artist friends: Martha, Spence and Carrie!
A follow up to last week’s post: The musher and snowmachiner made it home just fine–the trail was much smoother with the new snow. After they got out of town a ways and untied the dog sled from the snowgo, there was more space between the two travelers. Enough space that three wolves ran across the trail between them.
It seems like there is always something unexpected happening. Thursday about 8:00 pm we had a knock at the door. There stood a former student with a pizza delivery box. He’d snowmachined over with a Chicago-style, thick crust pizza for us. Homemade. With all the toppings you could ask for. Delicious. Thoughtful. Colorful.
