The Abbot Circle 1920 bijahutns on bnutn Shadows on snow S what are they? W gray, or green, -M or silvery purple? Paint them, and you may think you have found what it is. No A for try as you will, you can't reproduce shadows on snow. Shade your eyes and look again 5- the light has shifted, all is changed, it must remain a mystery. In some such way it is, that we all at times, perhaps in weak moments, peer ahead with straining eyes and try to distinguish the coloring of our future. How- ever unprofitable we have found it we will try for the hundredth time, W and be baffled. Wie cannot seem to leave that tantalizing thing - the Unknown - alone. But curiosity must be forever poking about, unexhausted. VVhy does the thing fascinate us so? We purchase Ouija boards and sit stiffly - for hours, enam- oured by the fitful sliding of that little triangle, and take awesome delight in the tales it tells us. And at bazaars, - or always popular Halloween revels, we are magnetized towards the dark-browed gypsy, and feel pleasant little thrills when she crosses our hands with our own good silver, and tells us of ships and journeys, bad luck and dark men. How indifferently then we laugh at her threats, - and later, in private, scan the secret lines - and wonder! Vlfe wonder - here in Abbot A we who will not be here a year from tonight. Does the Ouija board hold anything for us? Not a thing! Yet we think a good deal of that "next year." XNe think we have hit it! One says she has found the color, and seizing a brush, she splashes away ambitiously and paints a future - in pinks! How nice -it is settled at lastg that is just the shade! But looking again, in a different hour, the light has faded, the snow is only gray after all. Ur perhaps the once delicate Hush has reddened with new reflections and is garish. misjudged, A wrong. lt will not do, so we look - and look again, and each time see a different shade. How can we tell? Must we still look? Yes, - for nothing can stop us. We shall build pictures that will fade out flat and dull. ls it gray, - or green, - or silvery purple? There is nothing so elusive as shadows on snow! 7-L
