  • Could I live in a country where the seasons were so subtle as to be unnoticeable? Where the sun always shone, and the leaves were always green? On a cold day like today, when the wind chill claws at my face, I tell myself that I could forfeit the changing seasons for the promise of an endless summer, warm evenings, and the warmth of the sun on my skin.

    But could I really? Could I give up on the golden brown and red shades that color the streets in autumn, or the simple pleasure of kicking up the fallen leaves that cover the pavement on the days when nightfall creeps into the late afternoon? Could I really forfeit the smell of freshly cut grass on a beautiful spring day, or the sounds of birds singing the arrival of another season? No matter how cold it gets, I doubt I could like without seasons.

    1. very autumn! Yellow or brown is not to my liking but as usual this shot is terrific. Maybe because it was Simon who took the shot.I bet it will be fun to be in one place to feel and see the different seasons. In that case, you will see different colors, feel different breeze and maybe feel a renewal of self also! Because experiencing different seasons is quite a big big blessing!!!

      • It was funny, after this I kind of did autumn in reverse. The trees became greener and greener as I moved south. Eventually I returned to the summer here in Melbourne, Australia!
