« In 2012, let's elect Canada as president | Main | "Vancouvria" -- sharp satire about the anti-Portland »

January 15, 2012


I one worked with a Cuban immigrant who "escaped" (?) from Cuba right before Fidel Castro took control of the country. If memory serves, that would have been in the very early 1960's.
He told me that he had seen pictures of snow in textbooks as a child. When he came to America, he did not stop for long in Miami but was hustled up to the New York area in search of employment.
He told me that he cried like a baby when he experienced the first snowfall of his life. The beauty of it was overwhelming.
