It looks as if there were some reasons to start worrying about the rain.

that lusty month of May

by ada

May was – in its depressing way – sort of successful: I managed to finish 6 (six!) books. I blame it entirely on the weather. Every time I woke up, bursting with energy (haha) and the will to go outside and do something exciting on my rare free days, all I had to do to completely lose all of my interest and enthusiasm was to take my earplugs out and hear the raindrops pattering against my windows (what raindrops, hail it was, stones of ice as big as diamonds, more than once).

And yes, I’m aware of the fact that I really can’t claim any improvement in the quality of my readings, but I say, baby steps. I still can’t bring up any interest in early Baroque music treatises or meaningful literature, but at least I seem to enjoy reading again and that’s enough for now. I may be myself again one day or I may not – it’s not an actual problem now. Surviving and learning to love life, these are my most important goals lately and I’m doing quite well with them, I dare say.

Salzburg – Gaisberg Oldtimer Rallye

Sorry for the crappy quality of the photos – the combination of rain and fast-moving objects was simply too big a challenge for my poor point and shoot camera.

365/289+3 bonuses!

by ada

The last two days were all about Felix Baumgartner. Does he jump or does he not, does he survive or does he not. Well, he did jump and he did survive and we are all happy and proud. Salzburg people have a new god now, beside Mozart.

My adrenaline threshold is obviously somewhat lower than that of Felix Baumgartner. The sight of some raindrops on a fallen leaf made me excited enough for the day.

Watching Purcell’s King Arthur on the screen at Kapitelplatz. It ended with a storm – of course! everything ends with ice-cold rain in my life lately – , so we were all wearing the obligatory free ORF rain jacket uniform.

Another day of cold rain pouring down endlessly from the gray sky. I left my flat only for a coffee and came back soaked wet and in a very unfriendly mood. I feel this urgent need of moving to a hot, dry place like the Kalahari Desert quite often lately.

June 12, 2012

It’s raining again since days (actually since weeks, with eventual breaks). I spent the last summer in Holland and it was raining all the time. In June I thought, we still have the whole summer ahead of us. In July I got nervous, but thought, we didn’t lose the battle yet, August is the hottest month of summer in Europe, there is still some hope. In August I was furious, in September apathetic and in October I became depressed. And while I clearly cannot blame my clinical depression on the weather, it is a scientific fact that sunshine does count, where mental illness (at least depression) is concerned.

Now I’m in Austria and it rains uninterruptedly. I start to believe that I’m die Frau mit den Regenhänden (the woman with rainy hands). Wherever I go I take my heavy clouds with me.

So for today is a photo of some strawberries and a cup of hot chocolate, made with coconut milk and without sugar (because, despite of the overwhelming amount of photos of tiramisus, chocolates and coffee cups on this blog, I’m still on my gluten-free, dairy-free, low carb antidepressant diet); wich I will drink in bed while reading Perry Mason. My new goal is to get through of all the existing Perry Mason-stories. I became somewhat oversatiated with musicology and health care literature lately.

It was really cold and rainy the whole day, and I’m coming off coffee right now, so I just slept the day through (and I mean it literally). The few hours I was awake I spent with reading Perry Mason stories on my computer. I was desperately in need of some rest, so it was just perfect the way it was.
