I’ve noticed that a lot of the cafes and bars here put out polar fleece blankets on the chairs, especially the ones with outdoor seating. Isn’t that just thoughtful?
I catch myself in sweet moments with people here all the time, like, little kids holding the door for you like your entrance/exit is a big deal or the guy at the book shop excitedly recommending places in Berlin I should check for English books. And when I was sick last weekend (again, wtf?!) my new room mate gave me advice on what would be good for my stomach and made me tea, plus when I came back to the studio on Monday everyone asked me how I was doing with such genuine concern.
To top it off I came home today to see a letter from my dear friend Katie, the first to arrive for me here in Berlin (!!!). You know it’s been a lot of highs and lows but it’s hard to ever get too sad with nice things like these happening all the time.
