Do you know the fairytale 'Jorinde and Joringel'? Or I guess in English it would be 'Jorinda and Jorindel'. If you don't, you can find it over at the Gutenberg Project.
When we were little our adopted Grandmother would read it to us sometimes in the evenings, just before we went to bed. I still remember the illustrations in her edition and I also still remember how it felt to sit with her in her small apartment (right above the place where we lived), feel the warm sun of early summer evenings slowly fade into dusk and let the excitements of another day wane.
I rather wish it were summer already, don't you?
