The light blue sky, sunny spots on the flowers at the next balcony. It’s summer, it’s Saturday. Time to take your favorite book or your blog reader, grab a cup of coffee or tea and go outside. We should enjoy these last lovely summer days as much as we can. Maybe you find here something worthwhile to read, while relaxing in the sun:

An effective solution when your head is brimming with thoughts and you can’t focus.

…dance! Oh yes, sometimes I just need to do exactly that and sometimes simply this.

Have a beautiful sunny weekend.
