Ten o’clock and tee shirt weather. My family is away for the day, leaving me to my nefarious devices. Siding. Saw logs. The last swim in the pond (this time, surely, I mean it). There is snow in the forecast; not surprising, but still more than I feel ready for. But ready or not, here it comes.
Miscellany before I hit the woods: Someone recommended the documentary Peter and the Farm. We watched it, and I can confirm that it’s quite good. Depressing in ways, inspiring in others. Beautiful all around.
Susan M, thank you so much for your letter. It meant a lot. I wanted to reply in kind, but managed to misplace your return address, so I guess this’ll have to do.
This is one of the scariest, most sorrowful things I’ve ever heard. In all honesty, it brought me real close to tears, and we all know what a rough n’ tumble guy I am.
Music: Knopfler doing Telegraph Road. I’ve always loved this tune.
