This is something that I don't take for granted in my wintery life: a firepit outside in February in a shopping mall, adding just a small amount of additional warmth even though it's 63 degrees; grass and cacti and plantlife. . .
Several people asked about the full statue, so I included this shot of it today. It looked to me like it was made out of brightly colored strips of paper, almost in a paper-mache type medium. Maybe this is what San Franciscans make when they can't build snowpeople??????
