Over the summer Dunedin partially empties due to many of the students returning to their parents' homes. It seems like sunlight and vibrant greens and blues fill the empty spaces that these people leave behind. I often stumble across scenes of unbelievable tranquility - particular to Dunedin - and I will miss that.
Above is a photo I took of my parents' lounge, which they convert into a bedroom for me when my brother and I return home. I often sit late into the night reading and listening through the window to the distorted sounds of the city beyond - cultivating my inner weirdo.
I hope your year is winding down in a pleasant way and you overcome any obstacles you are currently facing!
