We’ve already had a lot of snow this season – it started just before Halloween and seems to keep coming. After every new snowfall I find myself staring at a framed copy of Bill Watterson’s last Calvin and Hobbes comic, which hangs by my desk. It features the beloved Calvin and his ever-present buddy, Hobbes, facing a new day blanketed in snow and armed with a sled.
This last cartoon was published on December 31, 1995. So as we approach another new year, I thought it appropriate to showcase that cartoon again because it so perfectly captures how I feel about the natural world – how I wish everyone felt. It is a magical world. Go explore.
