“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” ― John Steinbeck

Here are a few images from yesterdays walk through Warsaw in the snow. Next stop, Seattle where a much different type of winter waits. And when I return to Poland, the winter that I have grown to love will still be waiting.

From my earliest years I was infatuated with monsters and creatures of the imagination. I would sneak out any chance I could get to catch the Late Night Movie or watch my favorite reporter Karl Kolchak unravel the latest monster mystery that would charge my imagination.
