End of 2010 – Already?

Flipping through my calendar (a Filofax my friends always tease me about because it is big, heavy and not modern at all) my eyes fix on today’s date: 23 November 2010. I shake my head. Really, November? November as in the end of the year?

Life in Ghana without seasons – or ok, with very different and more subtle seasons – always confuses me about the time of year. This morning for example, I stepped out in our garden in flip-flops and a waxprint cloth around me. The sun shone with hot rays on my face, just like the sun in an early July morning in Sweden. But /snap/ it is November.  And that means another year has soon passed again.

Can you believe it is the end of 2010, a year I feel has just begun?

Are you ready for 2011?

  1. My mornings are quite different than yours. This morning I stepped outside (as in, outside my third-story apartment door, into the lobby) and was greeted with a cold wind that was just not so pleasant at 7 a.m. It is my first white morning in years… it’s cold, and silent, and white… no rays of sun, and no sun after 4. Can we please switch!?
