Finding Autumn in the Sub-Tropics
We've been living in one of the warmest places in the continental U.S. for going on six years now. I never imagined myself in this environment, never yearned for this sort of climate. I am certainly not unhappy here, but I was content in the temperate landscape of my upbringing. Change brings contrast, and contrast is often the impetus for appreciation. I realized just how important the seasons were to me once I no longer experienced them in the same way.
