How long can summer last?
Beautiful writing, Damon!
Thanks so much for all you write. You inspire.
"Zorro's of the North! Who could imagine!" <--- These are the kinds of exuberant lines that can stick with me for years. I had the interesting coincidence of reading this work while having had John Denver's "Grandma's Feather Bed" rolling through my head for the past several days.
What beautiful, elegant, evocative prose-poetry! I giggled at the notion of the automatic mowers "looking as confused as the rest of us."
