Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Mayday! (with dramatic emphasis)
May is supposed to be the time when Spring is blossoming into summer, when it is getting warmer and sunnier, when you feel all happy about the seasonal change... Yet these days, like last year actually, May looks very much like March. Sometimes like a nasty September or even October. Do not get me wrong: I LOVE the autumnal months and September and October are my favorite months. But their weather and cold temperatures do not fit this time of year when the trees are green and the flowers in bloom. And even the autumnal man I am is starting to long for warm times, so he can later appreciate autumn completely. Now it often rains, when it does not rain the wind blows anyway, I never know what to wear to the point where the shelves of my drawers are suffering from acute schizophrenia, warm jumpers and light t shirts all mixed together. Thankfully, I do not care about a tidy wardrobe. Yet, with this month of May that looks so much like something else, I find very fitting that Mayday became an international distress signal in radio communication. To be shouted with dramatic emphasis these days.
