Cuteness versus the Storm

I posted this picture to the "Voices in the Wilderness" group as part of the "Thoughts to live by" thread to accompany this quote:

 

I think I could turn and live with animals, they're so placid and self contain'd,

I stand and look at them long and long.

 

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,

They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,

They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,

Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things,

Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,

Not one is respectable or unhappy over the earth.

(Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass)

  

Snowing and blowing. Wind chill of -23C.
