Here is where I'm sitting now. These lovely summer days bring back childhood memories of endless perfect summers. With perfect summers I also mean rainy summer days when my friend Kerstin and I made new dresses for our paper-dolls, sitting on the balcony overlooking the Baltic Sea. But also swimming — I think we spent more time in the water than on land — and reading. Paper-dolls and swimming have I left behind but the love of books has remained. Especially sitting in the shadow with my favorite books within reach.
