autumn leaves vs. Mediterranean seas

I miss autumn so much. It’s my first away from New York. I felt it yesterday as I came out of work – getting closer to the big revolving door, I felt this chill and it smelled like Thanksgiving… and the chill reached my bones and I wasn’t wearing a heavy coat and I was wrapped in this chill and I sighed automatically and thought of New York and how nothing – not working in a ‘fancy’ (by Israeli standards) office building, not attempting a Thanksgiving dinner in the Middle East, not watching the Superbowl in Jerusalem – can make up for Christmas lights in the dark, being bundled in a down jacket in Times Square, drinking hot cocoa and watching my street turn white.
