give or take

So it’s summer, give or take. We went swimming for the first time, give or take. The water’s pretty icy, so it’s more of a quick dip, exactly in and out, cold knives stabbing you everywhere ... then back to the towel to roast some more.

Went to see Mimicking Birds play at Mississippi Studios on Saturday. Lance went to high school with these fellows. Have you heard them? A lovely slow burn.

And lots of just enjoying the lazy afternoons. Watering the garden. Watching the peas and collards grow. Pouring a big glass of something and, “toasting the gods and letting the light fall.”
