Nearing Winter Sunlight:

Just this past Sunday Amsterdam, looked like a splendor; it's approaching the year's annual end. The smell of sun-dried leaves filled the air as crepuscular rays shined down. This morning while cycling to work, 'salt'–to melt the ice–had been sprinkled on bike paths in my part of the city (and perhaps the whole city). Winter is on its way. And, almost instantaneously, Amsterdam has become freezing cold.
