Franconia bakes under the sun, it is well over 30° C. The sky looks milky, like when you spill milk on the sink, under a thin white film the metal shines through. It will get a bit cooler through the night, and tomorrow we’ll only reach the mid-twenties, but the heat will slowly come back, a little rain may be expected for the second part of the week.
There are gushes of hot air. I hope it will be bearable tomorrow afternoon ; work starts in the early morning, when all will be fresh and cool.
Nothing new here. All is prepared for the working week, paper heaps on the desk were properly dealt with – after all, and some weeks, most things can be ripped apart / thrown away, what stays is important and must be dealt with properly, then it’s “file & forget”.
I found a translation (cheater !) of Cicero’s conversations (Ger., Eng.) in Tusculum (Ger., Eng.) , and want to read it now. I have no idea why, but it seems to be apt. Visiting the place would be nice, preferably not in the summer heat. I would like to travel from Cicero’s villa and garden to Montaigne’s tower (Ger., Eng.) – maybe one could use a history of philosophy as trip advisor ? I am pretty sure that this was already done, but I know of no example.
Let’s listen to some gentle music, a little foxtrot composed by Alexander N. ZFASMAN (1906-1971) (Ger., Eng.), a gentle little piece of music that does not want to be something else but a gentle piece of music. I hope you like it. May the coming week be friendly to all of us.
