You and Your World: Favorite Season










Do you have a favorite time of year? Do you prefer basking on the beach in summer or sipping hot chocolate by a cozy fire in winter? Do you look forward to fall harvests or the flowers of spring? What season is your favorite, and why?

Anyone can answer!

I like springtime with all the flowers and butterflies. You can see the whole world coming back to life and it's wonderful.

Fall and winter. Less sun.

Nevin said...

I like the sun, Vic.

Vic said...

You would.

I used to like winter best for snowboarding.

Now I guess I like all of the seasons.

I liked Autumn - the changing leaves made everywhere brightly coloured - then when they were gone the Christmas lights took over.
That was my favourite.

Hi

Summer, I guess. I like the beach.

"Spring passes and one remembers one's innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance.”

You could do it here.

Don't care.

No seasons in lab. Just me working.

But Summer is good for bombs. Hot. Big explosion.

I came to the san Francisco area in May and the hills around my Aunt's place were green and beautiful. I don't know what the rest of the seasons are like on this side of the Atlantic.

In London I guess I liked early summer. Winter was dark and wet. Cold too as we couldn't afford to turn the heat on in our little flat, But Autumn's nice. Yes, I like Autumn best. Leaves rustling underfoot, Darkness falling earlier so the shops are pretty. The are pubs cosy and people freer with their tips.

And my birthday's in November!

I love the hushed mystery of winter, the sparkle of sunlight on snow, the crisp, cold air, and snuggling up by a warm fireplace with a good book and a mug of tea.

Ginger said...

Summer, most definitely!

Bo said...

I like summer, when people wear fewer clothes.

I've lived in a climate-controlled tube for my entire life. I guess I like the busy season, when we're on the receiving or giving end of transfer orbits to Earth.

Aidan said...

We got to put it off until next week, Shadow. We're flying out tonight for a few days. All sorts of hell breaking loose...

FLOWER said...

Aidan?

Trouble?

Don't let anything ... go wrong. OK?

Elaine 'still writing' Smith said...

I love summer - six weeks when I can work in my holiday - without worrying about deadlines!
Did I mention the 'geek' part?!

Kaelin said...

I'll keep him safe, Flower. Don't worry.

Charlene said...

Spring, it's not too hot (usually) and not too cold; a chance for me to relax in my short sleeve shirts and on some days, my shorts. I hate having to bundle up against the cold as much as I hate burning up.

Autumn. I love the way the air changes and the winds and the coolness. The colors get more clear. There's a feeling of expectation around Autumn that wakes me up. Sort of a sweet-sad way. I love Spring, too, but Autumn feels more poignant.

I do not like Summer. Hot. Yech.

Hi Aidan and Kaelin,

hope everything is okay.

Want me to help?

Kalila said...

I'll help them, Shadow. I haven't gotten into a good fight in a long time.

Ricky said...

Kalila, are you forgetting you have a gig tonight?

Kalila said...

Oh, yeah.

Sorry, Aidan.

Next tornado season when I'm nice and strong, though, count me in! Gig or no gig.

New York's winters were fun for me. When it snowed, we'ld run down the middle of the streets that were usually full of cars. Everything was black and white and when it rained , then froze, it was fun watchin' people slide and fall, especially cops when they were chasin' you.

None of that in Jamaica though, Hot in summer but not too bad up in the hills where we were. I didn't think much about seasons. New York stinks in the summer.

It must be weird up in space, Goran. with nothin'. I wouldn't like that! Did you grow properly living there all that time?

Goran Njiric said...

Surprissingly, yes, Gabby. I'm a giant 185 cm tall monster of a man. I've long since stopped woring on any muscle, but I'm too big for most ships to take me away from the colony.

We have gravity up here on the stations, and on maybe a handful of privately owned ships.

It's not terribly weird to me, but I've been up here for sixty-seven years. I suppose it's lost whatever weirdness it had.
