Autumn Leaves

Ambivalence over the name of the third season

Autumn Leaves

Ambivalence over the name of the third season of the year reflects its status as a relatively new concept.
As natural as it seems today, people haven't always thought of the year in terms of four seasons.
Fifteen hundred years ago, the Anglo-Saxons marked the passage of time with just one season:
winter, a concept considered equivalent to hardship or adversity that metaphorically represented the year in its entirety.
For example, in the Old English epic poem "Beowulf," the title character rescues a kingdom that had been terrorized by a monster for "12 winters."

Paris is a city of flâneurs

Autumn Leaves 

Paris is a city of flâneurs, people who stroll, meander, get a little lost, but along the way discover small treasures.
It is a city to be walked, slowly.
A city to be enjoyed by sitting on a terrace of a café, sipping a coffee, a hot chocolate or a glass of champagne, and watching the people go past.
