The Vineyard - Chapter 1
It was time for vacation, for leaving everything behind. He felt empty, burned out. Via internet he booked a room at a little vineyard far away from home. He needed space, he wanted something new. Whatever it would be – he just had to leave. The last weeks have been too exhausting and he was tired of all those arguments, justifications, anger and emptiness. Even it he feels ok he knew nothing was in the right place. Not even he himself. His relationship was only habit, routine. He had to break it – though it wasn’t as easy as he thought it to be.

A new part of his life began, the sky opened it’s locks – pouring rain thundered against the almost blind windows. ‘It’s like washing away the uneasiness, troubles and doubts’ he thought. For the first time in months he smiled. Life's glory is not in never falling, but getting up every time you fall.
Yes, it seemed to be a good start.
