The fact that this is snow — I mean, really? REALLY? — seems important to me. Like, if you sat beneath a fig tree and meditated on that fact for a few years, you’d probably somehow understand everything.

THIS IS SNOW.

It’s winter here. There are no mathematically-perfect ice crystals; we don’t get those in Berkeley. But boy is it cold.

One comment

Johannes Kepler actually tried the long-term meditation on snow you suggest! He then wrote an essay about it, On the Six-Cornered Snowflake, and gave it as a gift to his royal patron.
