Portraits Of Boston: Changing Of The Seasons

“I’m from Puerto Rico, so in the last several months I’ve been experiencing the changing of the seasons for the first time. When I met him last fall, it was right before the leaves started changing color. And I know this will sound a little cheesy, but I fell in love with him when the seasons started changing. I felt sympathetic to what the trees were going through because I was experiencing the same. I felt part of that process. I was also changing as I was falling in love. It was similar to the way, in books, the landscape usually corresponds to the feelings of the characters. If they are moody and sad, it’s rainy and gloomy. For me, it was like a symbolic and symbiotic experience.”
