It is now one of my favorite things of life in Amsterdam, and one I will likely miss most.
Yes, I bet if my life was ‘standard’ and I had to bike to work at 7:30am when it is still dark, or if I had to worry about sweeping up leaves, I may detest it. But I am lucky and I just get to savor and enjoy.
And at times like now…. When there are days one feels blue and blah, to go outside and be surrounded by orange and red, to have gold fall like snow on you as you walk, the rustle on the pavement… the swoosh swoosh of the leaves… Well, it helps to leave the blue behind and be surrounded by golden yellow red.
