chapter 679, in which Salzburg is entirely surrounded with water

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.

it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

I clearly wasn’t prepared for this snow. All I want to do now is to move to the Bahamas and start a brand new life. A life in which the words cold and snow don’t even bear any meaning.

Eating ice with colleagues. It’s quite necessary for surviving a thirteen-hours long working day in a 35C grad weather.

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.

I took this photo from under a bridge while waiting for the storm to pass by. I experienced some pretty hard storms in Holland, from the kind when you are desperately fighting your way against the tornadolike wind, icecold rain pouring cruelly on your face and soaking your clothes through; the wheels of your bike sunk into wildly flowing yellow waters of questionable origin and every meter is a new challenge, because you have to keep your eyes shut (ever tried biking blind? If not, you haven’t lived yet). You get the picture. Just the average Dutch storm in a seaside city, 360 days per year.

Well, this storm of yesterday was comparable to any Dutch storms I ever had the pleasure of making through on the bike.
