In spite of four weeks off from work, and 22 days away from home, I’m missing summer already. Maybe I’m missing summer here at home. The rain came back in July, a week before I started my vacation, and is still here – now with renewed strength. The forecast suggests autumnal downpours and temperatures, i.e. cool and wet. I’m just not ready for that.
I’m also struggling with getting back into the routine of home. It’s been almost a week, and I still feel jetlagged and restless and “unarrived”. Could be the weather. Could be the shock of no more bright mornings: Dawn is as late as 05:49 now, but hidden behind heavy clouds, making my room dark to wake up in.
Yes, autumn is taking me completely by surprise. Could I have some summer back, please? To help me adjust?
