Snow in the South – Not as the grim, unyielding tenant of the Winter’s keep

Snow in the South is wonderful. It has a kind of magic and a mystery that it has nowhere else. And the reason
for this is that it comes to people in the South not as the grim, unyielding tenant of the Winter’s keep, but as a
strange and wild visitor from the secret North. It comes to them from darkness, to their own special and most
secret soul there in the South. It brings to them the thrilling isolation of its own white mystery. It brings them
something that they lack, and that they have to have; something that they have lost, but now have found;
something that they have known utterly, but had forgotten until now. Thomas Wolfe, “The Child by Tiger”
