Old Hills 04 by rufftoon Old Hills 04 by rufftoon
How grand it must have been, to have seen the millions of buffaloes roaming the plains...
Also, hinting at other winter spirits. For there was winter way before Jack Frost. He doesn't have the monopoly on the season! In fact, he is just but a small, mild aspect of it.
Though he is capable of quite a punch when need be.

Jack Frost (this version) belongs to Dreamworks.

I also like the way you worked the topic of Jack being a small spirit =) 
if you think about it, it's quite understandable

I have never seen a buffalo before...I would love to, though.

I keep thinking of winter as a Lady, cold and cruel, even unforgiving... but with a hidden warm spot.

I find there tends to be a bit of winter and summer in all seasons, even when one of them takes their turn to rule the land.

There are female winter spirits in Japan- cruel ones (with sometimes a soft spot).

Yeah, I think I've come across at least one legend pertaining to them.  Some lone traveler gets caught in a snowstorm, and suddenly comes across a small hot spring in a small house... with a very beautiful woman to greet him...

Could be getting my stories mixed up though. ^^; I do notice the Japanese have a lot of folktales warning against traveling alone.  Wonder why that is?

Maybe old man winter is one of Great Winter's names. He has many.

Belief is power. Sadly there isn't always enough to go around.

Man, millions of buffalo were around a scant 200 years ago. I can't imagine how different the world would be today if settlers of the past were more understanding of how to care for the world around them. :(
