What does it mean when you look outside at night, and the world is reminiscent of an old faded sepia photograph? It means it's going to snow! You can always tell by the sky in Vancouver when it's going to snow at night. The sky is brighter than it should be, and has a dull orange glow. Once the snow starts, it's the type that sticks, that coats tree-branches and rooftops. Soon, the ground mirrors the sky, glowing its sepia magic.

The snow that prevented me from writing my Friday exam did not deter me from my Saturday -- my final! -- exam. It's all done now, and even my last term paper was electronically-submitted at a reasonable hour. Oh, and Dr. S has exempted me from making up the cancelled Friday exam. My pleas worked, and I'll be receiving an average of my coursework thus far as my final grade.

I want to wish you all a happy holiday season! I'm going to bed now, and my dreams shall be sweet, by virtue of the sepia world outside. May your dreams be sweet too, and may you find magic, whatever colour it takes its form in, and may it touch you gently upon your eyelids as you allow yourself to drift off, showing you that all is good and well.

* And I'd like to recant my "stupid snow" comments in the previous post....


  1. Just want to wish you happy holidays before you go off to tan on the beach! You must be glad that your semester at school is over, although I know how much you love school. Must feel nice to move onto the next thing, especially when the next thing involves the tropics!

  2. You might not see this until you get back, so Happy New Year! You should convince Ray to give you some airmiles so you can go visit in the spring! Take lots of pictures ok? Can't wait to hear about your trip.

  3. I will think of you next time I see the sepia sky. That is a perfect way to describe it.
    Congratulations t completing the courses.

  4. How's the Dominican? Too bad you won't be updating your blog while you sit and sip on those tropical cocktails. Don't come back lobster-red, OK?
