fruit, success, normal

Posted by Picasa It's warmer now, but for a while, icicles were suspended from shrubs like transparent fruit.
In a review of Paul Johnson's biography of Winston Churchill, I read, that when asked for his recipe for success, Churchill replied: "Economy of effort. Never stand up when you can sit down; never sit down when you can lie down".
People I meet this afternoon say that they are glad that things are back to normal after Christmas and the snow. In Hall's bookshop Peter says that it's good to have a block of usual weather such as we have had, because it makes the winter go quicker.

That's a beautiful picture... I've never seen snow, so all this seems magical to me.
