pps I had got almost half way round the woods before realising what your last line meant!

I liked this very much. I read it while trying to get up courage to go for a walk :0) I will look at the snowflakes differently, if I do! These days snowflake has just a feeble meaning, but here you give them a huge existence, they become like...
