different kinds of good

The first snow fell in Berlin today and as I stepped out into the season’s first freeze part of me wanted to turn right back around and call it a day. However, I ventured on (largely because I had to get to work) and found the first snowflakes settling on my eyelashes strangely exhilarating. I guess John Ruskin has a point: “Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.”
