"There is a lot of snow, and the wind is blowing very hard. It is the kind of night when wind and waves and temperature combine, making ice, and glass-sharp crystals blow inland, cutting shapes that hikers find on summer afternoons to take home for the mantelpiece because they look like 'ducks.' Such is the creative process: a storm under the cover of darkness, shaping things in turmoil and privacy leaving souvenirs."
