Quotable – “What is Sweet”

“The snow is coming down, thick and steady and the other kids seem to disappear in and out of landscape, their faces obscured by the mist of their breath and the falling snow.  Some of these children have never seen snow before. Hakim from Nigeria, all elbows and knees thrashing his way through the drifts, and quiet Daksha from India who follows the other girls lead as they guide her through the rituals of snow angels and snowflakes on the tongue.  Like this, they urge and she shivers but follows.”
