Winter’s Horses

Photography by Bianca McCarty

The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical

event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in

another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then

where is it to be found?

—J. B. Priestley


The best and most

beautiful things in

the world cannot

be seen or even

touched—they must

be felt with the heart.

—Helen Keller

“On a warm spring day, a

galloping horse was only too

clearly a sweating animal of

flesh and blood. But a horse

racing through a snowstorm

became one with the very

elements; wrapped in the

whirling blast of the north

wind, the beast embodied

the icy breath of winter.”

—Yukio Mishima,

Spring Snow

The white horse with,

its feathery mane,

eyes of black night,

gallops on the soft snow,

which is the tapestry,

covering the treasure chest,

of hidden, unseen miracles.


—Nithya Raghavan

To be interested in the changing seasons is a

happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in

love with spring.

—George Santayana

It’s only on a winter’s ride that hot

breath can bring cold comfort.


—Butte Dawson

In the midst of winter, I

found there was, within me,

an invincible summer.

And that makes me happy.

For it says that no matter

how hard the world pushes

against me, within me,

there’s something stronger—

something better, pushing

right back.

—Albert Camus,

The Stranger

T ’ was the night before Christmas,

when all through the house,

not a creature was stirring,

not even a mouse.

—Clement Clarke Moore

“He moved like a dancer, which is not

surprising; a horse is a beautiful animal,

but it is perhaps most remarkable because it

moves as if it always hears music.”

—Mark Helprin, Winter’s Tale
