September's Here... End of Summer
It falls hard to keep posting on a regular basis. I’m kind of adopting a new lifestyle which involves spending a week abroad every month and it means I have to cramp my work and social life in the remaining 3 weeks. I just spend a week in Prague and in October I’m going to Sevilla. As a result less time for blogging.
Unfortunately/luckily I fell ill in Prague. I’ve got a damn cold again and I’m doing some time indoors dividing my time between my bed and the sofa so I get bored. A good opportunity to post some of the stuff I’ve been collecting for a proper post.
Whenever I fall ill I kinda get nostalgic and start listening to whatever eighties stuff that I have lying around. Davis Sylvian, Heaven 17 und Neue Deutsche Welle as it appears.
What song is better suited than Sylvian’s September from Secrets Of The Beehive. That classic album always reminds me of September. The end of Summer but not really Autumn yet. The time of Indian Summer. The heat is off but those last rays just won’t let go. The nights get longer and colder. The first signs of winter.
The music is acoustically bright and warm but there’s a glance of doom as cold synthesizer sounds color the black backdrop.
I will try to get more active but I can’t force anything. I just do this for fun and I’ve noticed that I’m coming to the end of my Box upload capacity and Blogger is acting strange when using firefox as I presently do. Time to rethink all of it.
