Journal / Snow

it’s supposed to snow.
not a big snow.
but a snow nonetheless.
i was watching a movie that was set in thailand, and i was wondering what it must be like to grow up in a place that’s always warm, a la singapore or thailand or india or brisbane.
i have to say that i’m a bit jealous of the architecture in warm places.
see, here in the cold climes we have to balance out concerns like: ‘glass vs. freezing cold’ when building houses.
every now and then i’ll look at a new, fancy, contemporary australian house and envy what they can get away with, i.e- ‘oh, let’s have entire walls of glass on hinges that can open up to our view of the tropical ocean!’
ah well.
it’s going to snow tonight.
and that’s nice.
