Rambling about Freak Weather

Today, we really had freak weather. Well, the day started really fine, we were enjoying sunshine & warmth. But in the afternoon, conditions changed. The clouds got darker and darker. I was still at university at that time and me and my fellow students got afraid of getting wet. When our course was over, we directly headed to our bikes, but.....well, after 50 metres or so, the rain began to fall. But rain is the wrong word. > The storm attacked us. There were branches torn off from the trees and the wind nearly pulled me down. The wind and rain was so strong that it became impossible to keep my eyes open. I headed to a petrol station a few metres away (like some fellow students did.) The filling station attendant really was nice. He even opened the car wash for us to offer us a place of refuge :) .Even the car drivers decided to take a break because the wind & rain was so strong. Although we all got wet, we laughed because the situation was so strange to wait in the car wash. Yeah, freak weather.
( I am really sorry for my language style. Sounds like a young pupil wrote it. But I am already tired and should go to bed now). Good Night.

Creative Output

just a few words, nothing serious...:

on the go

just one time
in space
in your head
changes everything
and nothing

is illuminated
and nothing
feels the same

so wake up
pack your stuff
we're leaving

Heinrich Böll: Ansichten eines Clowns / The Clown

2. A book with a "time of day" in its title.
Italo Calvino: Wenn ein Reisender in einer Winternacht / If on a winter's night a traveler

3. A book with a "relative" in its title.

Hi there.

This is the very beginning of my new blog. (I deleted the old one because I got a bit embarrassed because of the URL...) As the title of my blog already says, it will be about things in life which I cherish a lot: poetry, photography, books and life as such. I am not sure how often I will be able to post entries because university has its finger in the pie...But to cut a long story short, the first real post should follow soon.
