    1. She reminded me of William Blake's Autumn poem, one of the "daughters of the year", reposing:

      O Autumn, laden with fruit, and stainèd
      With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit
      Beneath my shady roof; there thou may'st rest,
      And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe,
      And all the daughters of the year shall dance!
      Sing now the lusty song of fruits and flowers.
      `The narrow bud opens her beauties to
      The sun, and love runs in her thrilling veins;
      Blossoms hang round the brows of Morning, and
      Flourish down the bright cheek of modest Eve,
      Till clust'ring Summer breaks forth into singing,
      And feather'd clouds strew flowers round her head.

  10. Gestern lag ich genau so entspannt im T-Shirt auf einer Almwiese in 2000m Höhe. Wie ich sehe, geht das in der Großstadt ebenso gut! Grüße aus dem Gebirge.
