    First Snow in Bishkek

     
    It started snowing during a student symposium at the American University of Central Asia. People here in Kyrgyzstan love winter, so the snow animated the students. I was reminded of Emerson's "Divinity School Address," in which Emerson criticizes those who sit in a church and ignore the miraculous nature of a snowstorm. I made this picture while walking home from work, privately celebrating the intersection of nature with our busy urban lives. Oct. 18, 2012
