A heatwave, as waves do, comes and goes. Some times it stays for a moment that our perception makes it looks long. Some times it just pass without leaving anything behind.
In any case, each heatwave is part of life.
A Roter Faden literary means red thread in german language but literally it is the central logical structure of a text. As another Roter Faden, the heatwave take place in this notebook as the central logical structure of life that continues, with some pauses or repetitions, next to some short stories, but it always continues.
