Flip Flop Flying


with 4 comments

This is the view from my bedroom window. As you can see, it’s not snowing here. In fact, the last time I saw any precipitation of any sort since early November. Now, I realise that most of the people reading this are likely to live in countries that are cold and wet right now, so I don’t expect any sympathy, but it’s weird. It’s weird to be in a city where the weather has been virtually identical every day for a couple of months. It’s not particularly hot. One could wear a t-shirt in the daytime, but one can also wear a sweater and feel fine. And there’s virtually never any clouds. I miss clouds. I guess you only realise you liked something so much when you don’t see it any more.

Anyway, on the photo, you can see a roof with a black water tank in the middle. Just to the left of the tank is a spiral staircase. At the top of that staircase is a dog.

That dog spends all day every day on that roof. It makes me sad. I don’t know if it’s up there at night too, the roof is too dark to see properly after dusk. I really do hope that he’s taken inside, or taken for a walk in the evenings, cos he seems quite miserable up there, and spends a lot of time at the top of that staircase looking down.

  2. About ten minutes ago, I saw a woman go up there with some food. She made quite a fuss over him, so he’s obviously liked to a certain extent…

  3. Hi Craig,

    Back in Istanbul I’ve experienced the exact same feeling and wrote about it on my blog – http://kreyssig.blogger.de/stories/1423051/
    It’s in German though but google’s translator will help :)

  4. There are a couple of clouds out there right now, but nothing spectacular. It’s funny how we feel guilty for saying bad things about warm weather, huh? I guess we, as Europeans, are so used to wanting the warm weather to arrive.
