They warn of how in so many parts of the country human flesh is not intended to stay exposed to this cold for more than 5 minutes. I also wonder why we fail to show the same concern for exposure of the human heart to brutal cold. There is a cold that is not from the arctic, but rather from the frozen realm of coldness, of distance, of isolation.
