ok, i have never wanted to really write anything about weather
but this weather has prompted me to
because its damned cold
now, i have been in the south where weather is despised
all through the newspapers and television
they treat it as if they can change it
the forecast are very disappointing
always talking its cold and or freezing
and when it is warm, they love it.
i have been up in iqaluit and pang for the past year
and people don't or rarely complain about it
and actually they rarely look forward to the warmness
and its cold up here now and its expected
actually they are appreciative of it
because they know that the cold is good for them
good for the community and good for the land
it will allow the hunters to travel wide and far
and they actually want it to last long because
the ice will thicken up and means the hunting
season is going to be longer
and the cold has made me think
about the past and imagine how it would have felt
in caribou skins and would be complain?
what is cold to you?
