Rainy Days

bonn 003

The skies are hanging low here, that’s how winter in Northern Germany usually looks like. January is usually the coldest month, with crisp weather. But this year the December played that role, and January seems to try to mimic the gray November with a lot of rain and fog. Today I went for a walk in the rain. I kind of like weather as such. I would have preferred snow over rain, but also as is I enjoyed coming home wet and cold to the bone. The photo above was taken at half past elven – that is the brightest time of the day!

With the constantly gray skies here, and really depressing news from all over the world, I am growing a mild sadness that feels like some kind of fatigue, and I feel unable to work concentrated for longer stretches of time.

But I can also feel ideas growing inside me, and I will give in to this mood, work less concentrated and industrious on more journals, and let myself play around artistically with some new ideas. Beautiful flowers grow from moist dark earth, let’s see what works will be inspired by this mood.
