P.S. I miss autumn
There are days when I am sitting here alone in my room missing little things or emotions from back home. Today I am missing autumn – from the bottom of my heart. I just miss everything about it: crisp air, scarves, sweaters, hoodies, falling leaves, tea or hot chocolate, the smell of rain, cozy blankets. Autumn is just great! It makes me want to write. I imagine myself in a quiet little coffee shop watching rain tap against the window and listening to the sounds of steaming milk and tinkling espresso cup. I can close my eyes and see myself sitting at the first table, right next to the window taking out a notebook and write – not type – everything that is mysterious to me. Isn’t it strange that autumn is so beautiful; yet everything is dying…
My favourite part of the autumn back in Romania was taking long walks in Cismigiu park. My romanian fellows who have seen this park during the autumn know very well what I am talking about. There’s nothing like pulling a sweater over your head on a frosty morning and enjoying a hot cup of coffee while watching the leaves change steadily from green to yellow, to orange, to deep red. And when they fall off the trees, it’s really amazing!
But I learned to always look at the bright side of the story. Now I am here and I drink iced coffee, I wear summer dresses every other day of the year and the only time I feel cold it’s when the air conditioning hits me in the back. I love Florida I can’t lie but there are days like this when I feel melancholic.
In the memory of crisp air, jeans and jackets I tried to combine these pieces in what I would call an autumn look. Even if it’s almost October I wasn’t very comfortable wearing this outfit since the sun still hits 90°F every day but I gave my best.
