Autumn in the city


October 2012

In Autumn I travel the most;

to visit cities like Fedora, Maurilia, DespinaandTekla,

To walk along The Street of the Crocodiles,

and meet the Buendiafamily in the lovely town of Macondo.

Go back to the Tokyo of the year 1q84,

and visit the Paris of Victor Hugoand George Perecmore than once.

And when the rain stops pouring,

I go to my city and collect new stock.

Coffee and books,

helping me to get through the long dark evenings.

Yet the smell of a city in Autumn,

transforms my visit into much more..
