The ground is white and crisp with frost. The sky is that brilliant blue you only see at this time of year, like a windless ocean. And I go all poetical :)

Yes, it’s wintertime, where paradoxically the air itself can take your breath away. I like Winter. I love the clean coldness of it all. I’ve never been one to complain about the cold – I’ve my own very efficient central heating system – and have been known to wander around wearing just jeans and t-shirt while the snow is underfoot. Some call it stupid, but I like the feel of the cold on my bare arms. ‘Nice.

Autumn is my favourite season though. I love the colours, all fading green and oranges and rusted reds. I like the weak light filtering through the trees, and the changing weather. I know, I’m in the UK, where “changing” is the constant state of affairs for the weather, but in Autumn it’s even more pronounced.

So, Autumn is my favourite, Winter is my second favourite.

What’s your second favourite, and why?

ps – new story up at http://www.greyscri.be. I left the earlier one up for more than it’s alotted 24 hours because I was so pleased with how it turned out. Now it’s back to the normal schedule of a short story a day!
