"Swearing great hope, the exiled risk across the globe,
and dream of riches and revenge." -- Spes Fallax -- Lucius Annaeus Seneca or pseudo-Seneca, trans Doyle --

This painting hangs in my parents' house in Melbourne, although they bought it in Canada, about 30 years or so ago. It has been very hot in Melbourne recently, and I can imagine my parents looking at the snow with longing.
No snow here in Exile, but plenty of dust swirling around in eddies and banking up against anything it can stick to.
