Snow Thunder or Thundersnow?

According to the all so reliable Wikipedia, snow thunder is: “Thundersnow, also known as a winter thunderstorm or a thunder snowstorm, is a relatively rare kind of thunderstorm with snow falling as the primary precipitation instead of rain. It typically falls in regions of strong upward motion within the cold sector of an extratropical cyclone, where the precipitation consists of ice pellets rather than snow.”

Earlier in the week, while I was at my grad. school residency at Goddard College, as heavy snow was falling from the dark sky, I saw streaks of light through my window blinds.   Though, the chaos seemed appropriate as I lay in bed with my mind crowded full of new ideas, pedagogy, critical discourse, and theories of “praxis.”  My residencies seem to inspire me  and excite me, though also mentally exhaust me.

The artworks I have planned for my upcoming semester are personal, internal, and reflective, as well as political, ecological, narrative, and collaborative.

Photographs. Daily Haiku. Collaboration with a local, amazing musician.  Story telling of local farmers and growers. Reflections and interpretations on old barn boards, windows, and doors.  Models of Vermont’s past degrading into the suburban “fields” all too common today…

It is all coming soon…
