Today is the first day of beautiful shimmering snow coming down in the eastern part of Germany. It reminds me of the time I was at art school in Hamburg. Every December my drawing teacher, who became a friend of mine over the years, encouraged us to draw angels. Angels we had never seen before. Big, fat ones, angels who were missing an arm or an eye. I did my best and over the years I built up an amazing collection of strange looking angels. Today I drew my first nice-looking angel, with a slightly unusual hairstyle, sport shoes and loosing her pet whilst reaching up to catch a letter from the sky. However, I still do have a fondness for the strange, wild, angels... Merry Christmas to you all.
