Diary / 2021

It wasn't a very different day from yesterday… I woke up early. I had a morning coffee on the balcony. The weather was slightly windy but beautiful. The acacia tree by the sea was slightly swaying. The sea was moving. I didn't swim today either. I watered the flowers. Starlice sprouted another leaf. I didn't want to have breakfast. I traveled between seats all day. 

I slept and woke up all the time... I dreamed of a field of blue and purple artichokes. I hadn't eaten anything all day. I remembered there were frozen artichokes in the freezer. But no lemon. There were plums in the cupboard. I cooked artichokes with plums. That's how nice it was...
