Walking in Hampstead on side-streets covered in yellow leaves, shiny wet pavement slabs, dew in the air (better than calling it rain), on my way to a lesson. I like this weather -at least I do when it's not actually raining on me. Is that weird? I like autumn, at least when it's not too rainy. Even the white sky (for now, at least) and the red leaves, so beautiful and so brief.
