Late summer, indoors.

We’ve enjoyed two days of late summer, this early autumn in Berlin. Everybody was frolicking through town, through parks and streets, trying to forget about those grey, rainy days ahead of us, soaking up the sunshine before its deficiency sets in and makes us miserable and eat tons of cookies, double chocolate chipped, I am pretty sure without all this extra chocolate intake during the holidays, peaking on Christmas Eve, we’d all be among the suicides in the morgues, no way we could survive this period of leafless trees, grey skies and endless colds without it, anyway, as much as I wanted to join my compassionates, I for one stayed at home, soaking up the impact these last sunny days had on my interior decoration, everything looked so splendid, the sun was bringing out everything at its very best, I just had to. And now I have to go out, I do need some fresh air.

  1. Didn’t Proust write that he could observe all of life from his room in Combray, with the play of light, the chiming of the church and even enjoy the beauty of flowers on the papier peint? Thank you for this wonderful late summer tonic against the darkness to come. While others crammed onto cafe terraces, you savoured every aspect of the light and the beauty around you.
