The long wait for sun, warmth & good vibes.

The thermometer on my cell phone shows minus 10 degrees. 36 degrees too little for my taste.

The winter blues hit me hard. This is the worst winter I've had since I've been in a wheelchair. "Live, love, laugh", "Be happy", "Enjoy the little things"... Yes, these are all mottos that are important to me. I'm an optimist, try to see everything positively, focus on the good. But at the moment, and I have to be honest, I don't always succeed. I'm moody, irritable and so fed up with this gray, cold, dreary winter. I'm plagued by nerve pain every day, my whole body is rigid, I'm constantly cold and I can't get anywhere because we have so much snow. In short: I'm not really feeling great.

I try to distract myself as much as possible with creative work. I practically paint my happy, colorful and radiant spring myself. But one thing is certain - Tyrolean winter and I will definitely never be good friends again. And that's why this will also be my last winter in the mountains, because next year my boyfriend and I will pack our bags and spend the winter somewhere warm, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the sea is murmuring, the mangoes are ripe and the Pina coladas are cool.

But until then there is still a lot to do. There are so many exciting projects coming up, great exhibitions and 1000 ideas are waiting to be implemented. And I'm sure next spring will definitely come. Hold on, drink tea and dream of a house in the south.
