Being an artist in Berlin

A sunny day in July. A hot 30 degrees. People sit on a picnic blanket in La Fontaine Park in Montreal. The German guest is introduced. Nice conversation takes place. And what is the overriding subject after the initial phase of getting to know each other. The winter! They talk about the bitter cold and the rough days at the end when the city longs for the spring. Photos of snow banks and frozen lakes get passed around. In the middle of the summer!
