survived another new moon. since i am here on tenerife i seem to become even more sensitive to the moon. & to everything else …
is it due to the situation, that i left such a big part of my life behind to go on living in a different world? i don’t know. & i don’t really care. it is as it is. & i somehow like it. getting closer to who i am. although this emotional rollercoaster is a bit exhausting. every little something gets under my skin. yesterday i teared up watching “bullerbü” with my daughter … on the other hand simple things like looking up to the sky make my heart dance with joy.
yay! the sun is back. summer, sun, warmth. for some days now the sun is shining, beautiful blue skies, and temperatures of more than 26° c. up to above 30° … i love it!
playa jardín in puerto de la cruz. spent a lovely afternoon there with my daughter, enjoying the sun & the warmth. it has been noticeably warmer there than in our home where the sky was cloudy. i am already accustomed to the temperatures here & feel cold when the temperature is below 20° c. … i surely will go to the tropics; i am almost sure that this will be the ideal climate for me! … but at the moment it’s quite nice here, much warmer than in hamburg!
yellow flags at the beach. which means that the drift, the waves are quite strong & one has to be careful when taking a bath.
there are a lot of lizzards here. some quite big ones:
my daughter found these beautiful stones:
quality of life. is basically related to climate, nature, freedom. i feel so much better here! the sun. the warmth. the scenery. spending so much time outdoor. my skin is tanned and i have not had that many freckles since my childhood … moreover there are lots of small things bringing joy in my life:
i so much like the way houses are built here. the traditional ones, cube-like, with flat roofs, terraces on the roof, stairs around the house and painted each in a different color 🙂 … like those in malta (on gozo, where i have been about 2 years ago). only that the houses are not that colorful there. i guess it is similar to the north african building style.
i somehow like the things not to be that specified – like the timetables of the busses. or the business policy of movistar 😉
i like the guaguas with their friendly & helpful drivers & the images of mary & jesus in each bus.
i like the chickens sleeping in the tree above the canyon near here
… to be continued 🙂
after managing to go to bed earlier (& get some sleep before midnight) during the last weeks, i have fallen back to my usual rhythm of working late at night. i really enjoy the silence of the night. writing, painting, programming … doing whatever i want without anybody demanding my attention or my assistance. listening to MY music … or, even better, to nothing …
time to replenish my energies 🙂
