… you wake up at 6 in the morning. And the sun is already shining.
… you wake up all sweaty and craving a cold shower. (Ok that one may also indicate something else but we are not getting into that.)
… you have flower boxes to water before you head to work.
… you can have breakfast on your balcony. Without wearing long sleeves.
… your office is colder than outside. So you put on long sleeves when you arrive.
… you have to dodge footbags. In and out of the office.
… you soften a pair of awesome new sandals. And get blisters. And worry about the hard skin on your feet that doesn’t look so good in said sandals.
… you get home at 5. And the sun is still up.
… bad days weigh down on you. But not as much as the hot humidity of the ambient air.
… the thunders growls for hours. Without any rain.
… the humidity and thunder builds up a tension that tingles your senses.
… the sky finally releases its stress and you can dance in the rain and let it wash away your woes. Without getting cold.
For me, summer arrived last Tuesday when I chased away a bad day by playing Caravane Palace and dancing in the rain on my balcony.
Hey there Summer, thanks for getting here. Please stay for more than three months.
