Snow… a most proper topic today! This morning when I opened the window I found my town all covered in soft and white snow. And it was still falling, fairy and obstinate like in a Pieter Bruegel painting. Adults didn't appreciate very much the surprise: too much trouble to reach working places, gates blocked, soaking shoes. But for the children at the school bus stop it was pure bliss. My illustration “snow” is from The Sketchbook Project 2012 and I like to pair it with the song “Snowflake” from Kate Bush album “Fifty words for snow”, a delicate, surrealist piece of music. The text is a dialogue between a woman and a personified falling snowflake. “the world is so loud, keep falling, I’ll find you”.
