“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
― Albert Camus

Today it definitely felt like November. Although Autumn continues until December, Winter has already seemed to set in. Astronomically, Winter is set to begin on the 21st of December which is the Winter Solstice, but Meteorologists start it on the 1st of December. Either way, it’s happening now!
