Keeping this short,
the saying goes
"a picture is worth a thousand words".
You'll guess it has been damn cold here lately,
even for me...
When I saw those icicles that are several feet long,
I thought this would be a good representation of my feeling about it
with the sharp angles and the cold shades of colors.
I pushed it further and came up with this version.
Imagine me a bit like the wizard of Oz,
hiding behind this and my voice booming,
welcoming you into the cold.
Won't you join me?!?
