Snow

Good morning, children! As you can see in the photograph, this morning a lion has walked on my veranda. It has been heading directly towards my veranda door, taking no notice of the candle lights, which were not lit, and that, aI think, is precisely why. Scary, though. It is a good thing it is snow, now, in Scandinavia, so that it was a little bit confused, aI believe. You see, to us, snow is a symbol of mercy, also. It covers everything, right? So, in Scandinavia, traditionally, we have had a feeling of togetherness, as peoples, and feeling of belonging to the people, which is a bit special, aI think. And if one should pin point why this is so, one would point to the snow, perhaps. And pointing at the snow is a strange thing to do, don’t you think? Ai mean, it is everywhere.
