Slipping Seasons 

I appreciated Joe Essid's stylish meditation on the disappearance of winter in Richmond ("The Long Fall," Back Page, March 26).

There is a great deal to be said about global warming, suburban sprawl and our destructive twin passions for comfort and convenience. This happens to be one of the most important things to say: that we lose what we lose not with a bang but with a whimper, in a world of unnoticed diminishing.

Well, not quite unnoticed.

Mr. Essid, thanks for noticing, and thanks for your graceful elegy.
