rainy spring days

After going through a down period at the beginning of the year, where most days were spent indoors and with bad thoughts, I had enough clarity of mind to suggest that we head out into nature for a bit. In fact I didn't really want to. I felt in the dumps and leaving my comfort zone was the least thing I wanted to do. It was a rainy, chilly, Saturday in March. It was cold and wet and matched my mood perfectly.

We headed to the tallest natural point in Berlin, where we twaddled about and splashed around in puddles – the longer I was out in the miserable weather the better I felt. By the time we moseyed down the 'mountain' (of 66 meters, har har) and made our way to a cute Italian restaurant I was feeling lighter than I had in weeks.

Sometimes it is hard to not get caught up in my own thoughts, but going out and about gives me some perspective and reminds me that, indeed, life does go on outside of my tiny apartment.
