Bruegel and my Son

My son age 11 took a picture of the school playground covered in snow

To send to his classmate who has recently moved to South Korea

He said there was no him, no longer in that playground

The image reminded me of Bruegel’s winter scenes

So I told him about how Bruegel made everyday drudgery look beautiful

He asked, did he miss someone too!
