Indian SummerPosted: October 26, 2012
Indian Summer is a heat wave that occurs in the autumn, or so says Wikipedia. The weatherman on my local radio station says that for it to be a real Indian Summer we have to have three days in a row of hot weather. The other defining quality of these type of autumn days is a haze that seems to soften and mute all the colours. Well I think there may be a storm coming my way tomorrow but I know that today is Indian Summer for me, and for all the people who were out along the canal in Lachine — riding bikes, walking dogs, catching some rays and having lunch on terraces. I sketched this from Parc René-Lévesque looking across the canal at Église Saints-Anges Gardiens and the domes of College Sainte-Anne.
