It is that time of the year again: the days of early summer, with the promise of so much still ahead. And it’s not summer unless it has von Otter singing Grieg. The mornings are still cool, the evenings so bright that with light that secrecy seems inpossible. Your body is not saturated with warmth yet: sun means not laziness, as it will in August but spurring your limbs into action.
This is not the time yet for wistfulness. Now is now.
