Tonight after all those quiet hot and muggy days,
at 2 o’clock in the morning the wind is rising. The sky is closing shut and
a terrible wind is blowing through the open windows. It also starts
to rain. It probably got a lot worse, but
I was sleeping like a log. Maybe the first deep
night-sleep of this summer. At 9am awake for the first time.
Closing some windows. Heavy grey, the wind keeps
blowing. It even remains chilly. The first feeling
of autumn. That’s how we experience it. By midday,
the sky is opening up. A lot of wind, cloud ships,
