ten skies

even though there is sun all over vienna for weeks i don't take too much pictures these days. there is a lot of work to be done. i had to work quite a bit in my daytime job and there are orders to be finished. it is also about time to think about christmas presents, baking cookies and drinking tee.

whenever there is no time to take pictures i go through old ones and sort them in new ways. i love the movies of james benning. and i love the idea of ten skies. here are ten skies that blew my mind away...

i'm one of the fallen leaves / covering your garden

right now there is so much in my life. autumn freaks me out in so many ways. and getting older freaks me out in even more ways. with the start of september (which is the month of my birthday) i start to get crazy. this crazyness lasts all winter long. november and december are always the peak because everything is so hectic and loud and there is so much all around. that's why i love christmas, even if i don't want to love it... because it gets so calm. and after christmas light comes back and things start to turn back into the way i love them.

sometimes i feel i run through life with a heart so wide open it starts to hurt. and it starts to get overwhelmed with emotion.

catching sunlight

there's not much to say. i try to get every glimpse of sunshine as long as it lasts and for the first time in this year i wish it would get cold. i wish there would be snow. in fact i was dreaming of it and now i'm longing for it which is a little crazy after all my whining about warmth an sun and hating winter. i guess maybe there is a right time for everything. right now it's time for winter...

our days in the sun / are quickly passing

there was one more weekend in vienna that felt like spring in autumn. exactly what i was hoping and wishing for... turning autumn and winter into spring and summer. well, there were no leaves on the trees, but it made quite a great noise to walk through fallen leaves. the grass was not really green, but the sky was blue and you can't always get what you want, especially not when it comes to seasons. we were walking like through the whole wiener wald. from one cardinal point to another. it felt like at least twenty kilometres... actually i think it was between ten and fifteen. but it felt awesome. my mind started to get clear for once and it almost felt like spring. except that stupid winter time and the fact, that it gets dark between four and five in the afternoon which is extremely bugging me. but whatever, it was a great day. i have to spend much more days like this. slow. a lovely friend and i had the idea of balancing on slack lines over fallen yellow leaves to catch these last warm sun beams with our hair and absorb it in our hearts to get through winter... but it was not that kind of warmth. we'll do that in spring as soon as the first warm sunbeams are coming out.
