Yesterday, stifling leaden heat, the strangest atmosphere biking home, the sun hidden behind clouds, a sky grey like autumn, indifferent, without promise of a thunderstorm, the air heavy and humid, sometimes suffused with the scents of the linden blossoms, becoming something solid and alive, almost.

A quite eerie stillness, people trying to get away from the heat, the noises of life reduced, muted.


This evening, finally, a thunderstorm to clear the air, & I, standing at the window, wonderfully cool air brushing my bare arms, looking up at the moving silhouettes of the trees, branches tossed and shaken by the wind, lightning flashing across the sky, occasionally near enough to colour the night, turn the leaves green instead of black, continuous roll and crash of thunder, raindrops splashing heavily on leaves, roofs, concrete.


Summer makes me yearn to be someone different before it turns into autumn again; spring has the promise of the year to come, but July... I (irrationally) want someone to make me let go of myself, make me give up control, make me more and less myself ...




[On a more prosic level, work, which pretty much sucks at the moment because of the medication messing with my body while it hopefully also kills the nasty bacteria; too much SV; actually managing to read a few books, same boring life as always ...]

you describe so beautifully and powerfully it feels like i am right there, feeling the heavy heat, waiting for the break of the thunderstorm.
