I like Autumn,
I'm not that interested in summer. It's nice that it's warm - it's very convenient, easy.
But I get bored after a while. The heat makes me drowsy, and I feel that the sun is a big eye WATCHING me...
And the steets are filled with people. People who LOVE summer, people who LOVE to prance around showing off their designer sunglasses, their designer clothes, their designer cars, their designer kids, their designer bodies, while they talk about how GREAT the WEATHER is and how nice it is with all that SUNSHINE!!!
OH, THAT LOVELY SUN!
I prefer to spend summer indoors, the shades pulled down, my hand wrapped around a cold beer.
Yes, I like Autumn - the air is cool and clear, and loaded with that wonderful scent of rotting leaves and wet soil.
The sky is filled with beautiful cloud formations, containing infinite shades of grey.
The wind grabs your hair, roughens up your face, makes you feel alive. Touches your Nordic heart.
In summer (that LOVELY season, with all that wonderful SUNSHINE) you get two colours:
Nice and simple, which it probably why this season has so much appeal to simple people.
In autumn you get all kinds of colours, red leaves, yellow leaves, purple grey skies, orange sunsets, lush greens and deep earthy browns after a rainfall.
Nature is heading for the death of winter, but is alive with colour and sensation.
But the simple people don't like that. There is no SUNSHINE!, the SUN is not SHINING on THEM! they have no use for their designer SUNGLASSES!!! the SUN is not reflecting in the SHINY paintjobs on their expensive cars!!! not making their jewellery GLITTER!!!
And the air is COLD! they can't wear their pink bikinis or show off their TATTOOS!!!
So they stay indoors, and gripe about the LOUSY WEATHER, and start saving up for that MUCH NEEDED holiday in a WARM and SUNNY place
I like Autumn,
I LOVE autumn.

Some GI's pose in front of the beast before it is shipped to the US for examination. Today it rests at the U.S Army Ordnance Museum (Aberdeen Proving Ground), Maryland USA.
