For the first time in years I am not annoyed at the onset of vacation. I am looking forwards to it, enjoying the thought of all the alternative things I can do. I will paint, tend the garden, cook slow elaborate meals on rainy days, sunbathe on the sunny ones, hunt for chanterelles, hike, swim (perhaps), pick blueberries and eat too much strawberries.
But first, a quick trip to the office. For some mysterious reason Markku hasn't received my two last emails containing the article for Dichtung Digital. I have some serious mailing to do, and Markku will soon know all of my alternate identities.
