Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

A walk in the snow
I had my very first proper walk in the snow today. Just a few minutes in the morning, but still. When I was walking in the drizzling English rain I looked like an otter, today with my black Kanuk coat I looked like a black bear in the snow. It was a short but nice experience: the smell of the snow and cold air, that gets on the clothes, the slight cracking of the snow underneath my feet, the immaculate white coat all around me. Proper snow and proper winter time. This is one good thing about going where the water is deep: Montreal is mainly icy, but Chicoutimi has a real winter.
