A Little Late…

But Happy Autumnal Equinox!

Autumn is my most favorite season, and I’m a little sad that it doesn’t feel like it yet here in Korea.

The weather has been going back and forth between hot and muggy and cold and rainy. I’m just dying for cool and dry with the option of sweatshirt.

I want to see leaves turn to rust, to gold. I want to smell that fall earth smell: light, crisp, with the slightest hint of musk. I want to walk through beautiful places and watch nature works its magic right in front of my eyes.

Unfortunately, everything is still verdant as ever.

I can’t find a pumpkin spice latte. Not one. I even went into Starbucks the other day (which I only do on the rarest occasions) in the hopes that they would have pumpkin, but all they had was maple pecan. Which was still good. But not pumpkin.

Even if I can’t fully embrace autumn yet, I can still listen to my absolute favorite band of the season: Type O Negative.

    • Hi Susan! So glad you’re enjoying my posts! I desperately want some New Jersey fall in Korea, but I truly am having a great time discovering new things here. I guess I’ll just have to look at pictures of crunchy leaves and pumpkins online!


  2. I’ve enjoyed reading about your journey and its ups and downs. I’ve been lucky enough to see Typo Negative live many years ago and it was powerful! Enjoy it and hopefully it gets you into the fall mood.
