Today, I have been enjoying the weather finally turning autumnal. A morning storm tore the leaves off trees and left the landscape bare and grey, reminding me it’s already November and the year drawing to and end. Somehow I always feel that they year really only begins in the autumn, with the school starting, with new season in the opera and theater, with new season everywhere. In the autumn I feel like starting something new, learning something new. While the nature around me is dying.
