Monday, while sitting at my desk writing a magazine article, my daughter came into the room. With her snake.
The sun was shining in. My kid put her snake on the window sill and left the room. The snake stayed there, basking in the sun, motionless. For a long time. Meanwhile the sun hit the prism hanging there... the walls were dancing with rainbows. Reptiles and rainbows. An incongruent combination.

Now that the fire has been going for three hours, and I've been sitting beside for at least an hour, I can appreciate the snake. My first thought, earlier, was "It's much too cold for basking!" No sun here.
