In last week’s column, I waxed nostalgic about snow–the big snows of my childhood and the infrequent snow of my adulthood.
And I quoted Marie Beynon Ray: “Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand–and melting like a snowflake.”
Now the snow is gone, and all I have is a memory and a question: Just who is Marie Beynon Ray?
I found the quote in a half-finished column about snow. A column begun years ago, so I had no idea where the quote came from.
