They say, one shouldn't praise the rain before it stops. And that is exactly, what is not happening these days. Berlin is drowing, the nights are still filled with heavy thunderstorms and everything seems unusually humid. A bit like in the Tropics, missing the heat though. When I was writing about change in my last post, I did mean it. I was convinced, that the second half of the year will come a round easier. Obviously life is trying to prove, it is not ready for that just now. What a week this has been; a broken hard drive. Late night hours in front of the computer and a tense couple included. A big misunderstanding with the tax office, a lot of unnecessary running around town, the car is still not finished, while the car dealer miplaced my passport. I could go on and on grumbling, but while typing this, it becomes clear, that it is of no actual use. It will only get me into an unfriendly, highly unsatisfying mood. The rain will stop eventually, so are the tricky parts, and in the end, everything's going to be solved. Patience, madame, patience. With that in mind, there is another bowl of the year's last strawberries waiting in the kitchen. What better could there be, while chilling on the couch. Rainy or not, have a good weekend. I am not giving up on the second half.
