This photo was taken in mid-April. Today is the 24th of October, and April seems like such a lifetime away. The daylight grows shorter, the shadows longer. It’s still night when we’re leaving for work in the morning.
April was springtime. There was sunlight, warm breezes, and a feeling of hope in the air, that winter had finally moved on past… only now I see that that was only a temporary respite: Winter is coming soon again.
