I know that every time a coastal Californian claims to want snow, somewhere a true cold weather dweller secretly wishes us an ice storm and a moment of reckoning. But we can’t help it. We pretty much only have two seasons around here and it leaves us wanting more.
I look at John-Paul Jespersen’s book, Man Was Here, and I’m completely sucked into the surreal snow scene on his first page. And every other photo does the same thing. Starry skies, illuminated oceans, glowing forests; I want to be there.
