summer falls away: the change of seasons in Beirut
Posted by adiamondinsunlight on October 15, 2007
The days are still warm here, but this weekend the air changed. Its drier and cooler – no longer the heavy humidity of summer.
I miss the glorious autumns of New England, but I love the change of seasons here as well. The trees in my yard are losing leaves here and there, and when I leave for the gym in the mornings, the sun is only just rising.
This graffiti began appearing here and there in mid-summer – a perfect image for the hot July weather:
(That’s my shoe, evidence of gym-going me. For those who love Pumas and shop in the US, a small hint: you can always find a range of good women’s Pumas at the Nordstrom outlet on 2nd and Pike in downtown Seattle.)
Ice cream doesn’t sound so appealing once the cooler weather sets in – and even less when the winter rains start. I can’t wait to see what the next season’s graffiti is – a mug of tea? a scarf? or – my favorite – an umbrella?
