ferragosto - Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming

ferragosto
Another sunny afternoon. Could get used to this. Actually, just as I begin to get used to it comes September every year, with lots of running around and, little by little, in waves, more and more cloudy, drizzly London days. But for now, for now...

There needs to be a German word for this: the inability to fully enjoy a summer day due to the knowledge of the colder days to come.
Perhaps Germans don't experience this, only us Brits :P

This. And in my case, the eternal precariousness of my economic situation, as well, with the 'will I make it through the summer without going bankrupt' and 'will I have enough work come September', etc. And, as I'm getting older, the 'if I do get enough work, will I have enough energy to deal with it'. At this point it always feels like I'll end up in the workhouse (oh, ok, there aren't any workhouses now, but you know what I mean) before Christmas. It never happens, at least thus far.

Weather wise, I'm a bad child of the tropics, I seem to have a rather narrow range of optimal temperature. Or maybe i've just become grumpier as I get older and absorbe more of the native culture here ('mustn't grumble..' as a prelude to be followed by a damn good grumble..)
