Back to normal…
It’s August, and that means back to normal: back to my daily routine, back to work, back to cooler weather. I particularly welcome the last one. It’s wonderful to go outdoors without feeling that my face is melting. Or being able to sleep at night again now that the flat doesn’t feel like a sauna anymore.
But August also means darker evenings (sunset is around 9.30 already) and the (gradual) end of summer.
I know: everyone is always raving about the white nights of early summer, but I really like these darker late summer evenings, too. There’s something special about those long, lingering August sunsets. It’s as if Mother Nature is telling us to savour this last bit of summer splendour because soon it will be gone. Until next year, that is.
