The height of a terrible summer

Hi,

This is my very first post on my very first blog.

I don't know how hot it is where you are, but here it's heating up nicely after a couple of days of refreshing rain. I am imagining what it would be like to have this sun beat down on me in the middle of a siege, my city surrounded by the enemy, famished and thirsty, and wondering whether I am going to die from an the enemy’s lucky shot, or agonising starvation.

I have asked myself many times during the past few years, how would I have faced that? Would I have been as courageous as Kenau Hasselaar, or would I have folded?

I hope to never know, though I cannot help speculating.
