Amazing Art of Snow Sculpture

December 6th, 2010

Last week, we had a roundup of snow photography and have mentioned that winter is not a season to be underestimated. There are people who are eager and can hardly wait for the first snowstorm to hit. As you will see in today’s post, there is a lot one can do with snow — welcome to the art of snow sculpture!

People love to talk but hate to listen. Listening is not merely not talking, though even that is beyond most of our powers; it means taking a vigorous, human interest in what is being told us. You can listen like a blank wall or like a splendid auditorium where every sound comes back fuller and richer.
