Oh,

Thank you, Frank. Very helpful. There are many great things with this forum. You can get, at times, immediate response, tips and advice. There are no separate groups for mutual admiration. And more

Personally I post so/too many pictures because I have yet to learn about other people's taste

Yes, snow can be very warming also physically. Think of the innuit "igloos". Bivack is a way to dig yourself into the snow, creating a small room for yourself

Way up north there are small very primitive "cottages". In winter it is custom to arrange matches in the box so they can be accessed also for very very numb(?) fingers. With the goal to be able to make up fire

It can be a matter of life and death

Well Torgny, In my opinion you can never post too many pics, as I get to know you also through them. Each one is a small peak into your personality and so far I like what I see Frank

Hi Torgny, as usual I have enjoyed your pictures of an alien landscape. I think the last time we had snow here that actually stuck was 1972. Last night we broke a record for cold. -5.5 celcius.

I like the poem very much. Another american poet wrote a poem appropriate for your pictures.

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Robert Frost

I have always liked this poem.

Always enjoy seeing Siirka enjoying herself.

I'm going to risk political correctness and wish you a Merry Christman and Happy new Year!

Yes, Mark,

There must be some explanation to the attraction of pictures with benches. Thank you

Torgny

Robert,

-5,5 Celsius. You may get white holidays . I read some about Robert Frost. Seems he wasn't exactly overly "jolly" all of the time. Thank you for presenting the poem

Yes, it catches the mood. Basic content structure, to me: The tension between the outsider, the alien(?), perhaps without a steady home, a passer, a rider by, on one hand, and a possessor, land owner, on the other hand.

So different from the native American view that land can't be "owned". Can almost hear encircling Indians and the cool coyote call

Same to you and yours, Robert

Torgny

Yes, my little wolf is in her right element this time of the year
