Melancholy

Standard

It is said that 秋の日は釣瓶落とし, meaning the sun sets immediately in autumn like a hung pail falls onto the surface of a well. It really does: air around you suddenly gets chilly after 15:00, blue in the sky turns darker and darker toward real black just before 夕焼け小焼け, Home for Dark starts to sound through municipal radio system at 17:00. Since younger days, Mei-Shun prefers to hear it at home. Thanks to family members, a little sadness to say good-bye could be much alleviated.
