Appropriate last line for a day like today: "His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead." Thus the Irish novelist James Joyce closed out "Dubliners," his collection of short stories. http://ow.ly/IMdlf
