Early Monday Thoughts

We have snow, finally. The white shawl is lovely, muffling sounds, creating art out of the bare branches of the trees and wrapping everything into a paradoxically warm winter coat. It is a mirage of peace, and even though a mirage, I take it. For today.

If you don't feel ready for memories of hot fires and cups of chocolate after a day's skating or skiing, how about a history lesson on, say, the military-industrial complex?

Still a valid warning, sadly.

Finally, given olvlzl's post about housing for the homeless, here is a blog by a homeless man, giving his thoughts about the roofless and rootless life.
