The coming storm

November 3rd, 2007 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

It’s been calm here for months. So when something happens like it did last night, it’s enough to make you fear the worst.
All summer long it’s been settled. Blue skies, sunny days. Everyone’s talking about the winter. Wondering, waiting. And it still hasn’t arrived.
But something’s changed.
Last night Damascus was engulfed by a wind storm. It blew dust into the eyes of girls who’d spent hours on their Friday night makeup. It even blew me into the road.
It’s that weird time between summer and winter (normal countries have an autumn – we don’t).
We never know exactly when winter will wash away the blue skies and sweaty days. But it will happen, and this year it’s slightly late. So people seem to be trying their best to make it hurry up and come.
The blankets have been taken out of the cupboards and dusted off. The Summer Time has changed to Winter Time (one hour earlier). And the police have changed into their dark green winter uniforms, getting rid of their short sleeve beige outfits.
The clouds are gathering. We don’t know when the first storm of winter will come. But we know it’s blowing our way.

    I had to read this twice to realise that you are actually referring to real storms and not the ones that come with American and Israeli bombers and missiles. Such are the times we live in… :)
