Falling into winter

The fog is rolling in. That means the seasons are changing in the UAE. It is going from the sweltering summer heat to the cooler days and nights of winter. The other seasons – fall and spring? They do not really happen here. There is summer, there is winter, and there is very little in between. Picking apples and choosing pumpkins for carving seem to be a distant memory of cooler times.

Of shorter days and longer nights. Of heavier coats and layers of clothing. Winter now means mornings and evenings outside, instead of bundled inside by a fire. Even without the change of seasons, there are benefits to this life.
