“The dog is a reflection of your energy, of your behaviour. You have to ask, ‘What am I doing?’ That’s the right question to ask.”
The days are getting shorter as autumn takes its time in getting here. Our clocks turn back on April 6 to standard time and that’s when we’ll really notice the downshift to cooler days and nights. We’ve had something of an Indian summer here over March, with warm days still in the high 20s. Winters in Sydney are pretty mild by comparison to the cities I’ve lived in or visited during my travels. An Edinburgh winter is bitterly cold, an Oslo winter dark and at times oppressive, a New York winter freezing but still incredibly beautiful.
Sydney winters are often dry, bright and sunny but pleasant, around 18-20′C most days with cool to cold(ish) nights. Still, having said that, the energy of the city starts to wind down a little as the days get shorter. Personally, I love it at this time of year because it’s still mild enough that you can be outside and enjoying all the city has to offer, and if it starts to get cool of an evening, you just tug on a cardy or a light sweater of an evening.
I also find that my energy comes back a little.
