a day for extra large sunglasses
The leaves have started falling in Barcelona. I had forgotten that they did that so soon. By July, the trees, exhausted from the heat and humidity and with more to come, begin to relinquish their leaves, which collect underfoot, given a strangely autumnal air despite the 30 degree heat.
I feel rather like a tree, losing layers of protection and pretense, sweltering in a new reality, standing very still to conserve resources. I don't remember if the leaves grow back again during the summer, or if they keep falling until they sit in dusty brown piles in the parks in November.
