Sunday’s Best: White Space for the New Year

Snow plays a nice role in many of today’s Sunday strips.  From simple gag to creative use of space, the white stuff is a nice way to represent some of the hopes of a new year.  First, the simple gag from FoxTrot:

Speaking of white space, still a couple of more days before officially heading back to work. Unofficially, I’ll be heading back in tomorrow and Tuesday for a few hours each day.  Beyond that, it’s appointments and trying to settle in for a quarter with new students and the topic of ethics.
