Last week, spring started according to the calender and according to the sun. We even had a lovely breakfast on the balcony. Only today, it is another rainy sunday. Time for a round of reading/listening/found…
Reading: Valeria Luiselli’s Die Schwerelosen (Los Ingrávidos) and loving every paragraph of it. It is about a woman’s life in New York dedicated to literature and social experiences, it is about memory, about Mexican literature, about the same woman’s life as a wife with two children and a husband living in Mexico City. It is all (about) literature. (and I marked so many sentences with my pencil.)

Listening: to Wolf in Loveland, a folk rock band from The Netherlands, especially to the first song.
Found: somebody else who also likes to imagine what it could be like living somewhere else (once more).
