If you keep walking eventually you can become snow, it takes a while though. If you don’t walk long
enough you just end up getting too cold and wanting to turn back. Worse yet, if you’re really far out,
past that dividing line, you run the risk of dying on the walk back. Instead, better to keep going. Best of all, when you turn into winter, you eventually turn into spring. And who knows what the possibilities are when that happens. Only spring and you will know the answer to that. And maybe better than best of all, you will know the answer to a question that none us who stayed back will ever know.
