January 09, 2007
It´s good to be back and notice that nothing has changed since I left. Well, if anything, the weather. Bring your winter coat, my mother said, and when I refused, she declared me to be crazy. In just a sweater I walk through the city now, and still I´m warm. My autumn jacket I hold folded over an arm.
A pleasant eighteen degrees during daytime, and the people still walk right in front of me, blocking entire sidewalks or causing me to nearly bump into them. Really, nothing changed, but what did I expect, and how good it is! We play football in our t-shirts, and an evening jog towards the beach happens to give me a much-too-early spring feeling.
It is yet to be seen how the rest of this in my imagination wintery month will unfold. Perhaps the ski trip that a housemate had in mind might just turn into a beach trip, mid-February.
