With the weather expected to remain cool and overcast for the next 30 days, the melancholy of autumn may be coming early this year…
You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each
year when the leaves fell from the trees and their
branches were bare against the wind and the cold,
wintry light. But you knew there would always be the
spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was
frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it
was as though a young person had died for no reason.
In those days, though, the spring always came finally but it
was frightening that it had nearly failed.
A Moveable Feast Ernest Hemingway
Let hope that spring arrives without delay on the other side of winter…
