A grievance

ArtGrupa has a very interesting challenge theme: something meaningful to you, like a fleeting moment when something happened and which isn't visible to others.

This made me think of global warming and something on a very personal level. I come from an arctic country. Before the global warming we had winters. We had snow, plenty of snow and we had ice. Ships did hard, they couldn't move without ice breakers. The coldness was something fierce, and in a snow storm the small hard snow pellets ate into your skin.
Having grown up with it I find it hard to let go. I miss snow, I miss cold, I miss ice.

This set arose from the feeling of profound loss.

Background is a riot of mixed media on an old book page, and I selected the found texts to echo the feelings one might have during a cold and icy snow storm.
