but outside

it is summer. the brief summer of this country where it is often winter, but most of the time – autumn, even when it is spring.

not that i particularly like the sunshine and the heat, and all that…but the trees are green, the birds have lead forth their young and are conceiving another hatch, the breeze is warm in the evening, the herbs grow, and i need to muster strength and memory to get some soil for the tomato plants… the tomato plants will like the sunshine particularly.

and so, i built this. and actually spent some time in it, reading student essays. and then, two nights. the moon is so wonderful, and one can even see the stars. without a telescope. the cat does not like the idea much though – he thinks it is all flimsy and unsafe. but he’ll come round, you’ll see.

when the door is open, summer is outside
