ニューヨークの秋は短い。
半袖の季節から、一気にダウンジャケットが必要になる。
気温の落差が激しいから、木々の葉っぱも一気に色づき、
映画「Autumn in New York」と同じ、美しい世界が生まれる。

ニューヨーク郊外御在住の先輩宅で、ポットラックパーティー。
創立10周年を迎えた都立西高同窓会米国支部の定例会でもあり、
それぞれが持ち寄った食事を囲みながら、近況報告。
久しぶりに会った者同士でも会話が弾むのは、きっと同窓という絆の所以。

毎年こうして御自宅を御提供してくださる方がいて、
毎年こうして集える仲間がいる御縁に感謝。
子供達も少しずつ大きくなって、家族の形も少しずつつ変化していくけれど、
「変わらないもの」の存在を大事にしていたい。

冬時間の到来と共に、ニューヨークの秋は幕を閉じた。

The autumn of New York is very short.
From the season of short sleeves, down jacket is required at a stroke now.
Since the disparity in temperature is intense, the leaves of the trees are also colored at once,
The same beautiful world as the movie "Autumn in New York" is born.

There had a "pot luck party" at my friend's house living in the suburbs of New York.
It was also a regular meeting of the US branch of the Tokyo Metropolitan Nishi high school alumni association that celebrated its 10th anniversary.
We enjoyed the meals we brought with each other, and talk together.
The reason why we enjoyed the conversation even among those who have met for the first time was surely the reason of the bond of the alumni.

We appreciate that there are friends who provide us with their home every year.
Also we thank our relationship to gather in this way every year.
Though children grow little by little, and the style of family gradually changes,
I want to cherish the existence of "unchanged things".

With the arrival of "winter time", autumn in New York got a curtain call.
