It’s already September…time flies…

These are the very thoughts of me drinking a cup of hot chocolate inside a café in old Athens, looking out the glass window this rainy afternoon.

Yap, it’s raining alright. Not that it’s cold or something, the temperature is like 26 Celsius…it’ s hot, rainy and gloomy, and I see the summer passing by in front of me…all in all I think I refuse to let go of summer.

Refuse to let go of the sun – which between us to be frank the sun never really goes away in Greece, it’s just the idea. – I refuse to let go of salt in my hair…spending the whole day at the beach ‘till the sundown…and when the sun sets you’re still there on the day bed with your friends joking around, laughing, and grabbing a bite, or even more in your loved one’s arms gazing at the stars feeling the light summer breeze…

My phone suddenly starts ringing and awakes me from my daydreaming…I instantly answer as it was my editor in chief letting me know that I’m behind schedule and to remind me about the Living postcards team gathering, the day after tomorrow. Come to think of it I got carried away by the discussion we had and I got up, paid for my chocolate and left the café whilst still talking on the phone, completely forgetting my summer nostalgia.

I enjoyed my summer yes, but I realized that I’m not nostalgic anymore…I am grateful. Grateful for a battery filling and strength giving summer. Strength to be creative and what else…if not making the dreams come true.
