10 Mrz Winter Winter go away
Winter – he’s back. What an unpleasant surprise. Especially after last week’s highway to spring with cloudless skies and double-digit temperatures above(!) zero. So, naturally I thought we were finally out of the woods, er, winter.
Just the other day, my colleague and I were discussing our perception of time during winter. For her, winter is a gift; a gift that reveals time once it unwraps. She said that she has more time to herself than during any other season. Well, I always feel like hibernating. I sleep longer in the dark and the light is slipping through my fingers, only to be admired from the dark vinery that is my office. Compared to the the other seasons, I think that winter is positively claustrophobic.
But not long now and this superlong and uncommonly dark winter will be just another fading memory. Speaking of memories – I found these black and white pictures taken 3 winters ago at the Baltic Sea (which you can’t really see, ’cause it’s covererd in snow ;)
Well, a few more hours of this re-onset of winter and we’ll be right back at that kind of scenery (I still can’t believe, just a few days ago, we spent our lunch break outside, without a coat, almost catching a tan…).
