Hypopetria questions

Walkin'

Pearl and I treated ourselves to a walk in the woods after a fresh snow last week. The day was sunny but temperatures were only slightly above zero so we were the first and only visitors in the park. As the wind gradually picked up, puffs of snow plopped from the trees, and Pearl gave merry chase as they plunked to the ground.

An obtuse winter

Food for Thought

When I was in college in Iowa City, I had several art classes each week, from the usual 50-minute length to two-hour studio classes. Some perverse member of the art staff had decided that 7:30 a.m. was a good time for art history lectures. These were mostly slide shows of art works illustrating whatever topic our professor chose to lecture on that day. The lecture room was in the basement of the art building, windowless, dimly lit only by the slide projector, overheated, and stuffy.
