…and the snow arrived. Touched warm coco coverings, melted and slid down cheeky crevices. I miss my enigmatic fro-queen and the days we would eat snow together…with a spoon!
Song: ‘Banmidele’ Asa
Today, parts of the earth have been decorated with white frosting. Thus Heathrow cancelled a third of scheduled flights and Algerians shovelled snow off their roofs to prevent them from caving in. A woman in Kabul struggles to carry water through the snow to her home; whilst my foundation year one partner slips and slides on the icy black driving home after an on call. Syrians continue to kill each other.
Silently…tucked away in the mountainous highlands near Ballanter, Scotland, my friend lays. He is camping with a big bon fire. The sky is so clear that the full moon scatters moonlight on the snow like daylight.
