2-7

today was hot...carolina hot, not new-englanders-wear-linen and-seersucker hot. hot like you must be as close to naked as socially acceptable and you will quite literally perish if you don't keep sucking down lemon spritzers...so we swam and swam, at a good good friend's pool. and drank root beers. and tried to ignore the elephant in the proverbial room that i am not getting any younger, prettier, richer, fitter, faster, wittier, or more musical.

it was a perfect day,  that started with a run in the woods at 6:30 am...just me and all the cobwebs...and a day that will end with decidedly un-local artichokes, obscene amounts of garlic lemon salt butter, a good glass of white, and my --if i may-- phenomenal chocolate chip cookies. a very simple, a very peaceful, a very happy birthday.
