Homer, Alaska is sometimes referred to as "The Cosmic Hamlet By The Sea". On a day like this, earlier this week, it does indeed look otherworldly. We're having a "real" winter this season, with continual snow, dipping temperatures in the single digits, and that unspoken sensation of comeradery that residents feel towards one another.
We're in this together, say our open-faced looks as we greet each other at the local mom & pop stores, at the post office, at our favorite coffee shop. But there's no sense of displeasure that we're in the grips of another long, cold, dark winter. Look at the place we live! It's cosmic.
