Went for a long walk with my mom through the fields behind my parents’ neighborhood tonight. After yet another day of heavy rain, everything was luscious green and extra muddy. And then the sun set, and painted everything in a warm, yellow light. There were actual amber waves of grain, and soft wind, and no one else around.
I’m going back to Cologne tomorrow – which in most ways is the complete opposite of the above – so this was a lovely end to my one-week stay up North.
