Summer Solstice+

Full moon on the farm in VT. Fireflies. (And, okay, a few too many caterpillars.) An extraordinary chorus of frogs drifting up from the nearby farm pond. Sitting out looking over 6 or 7 rows of mountains, each a different shade of green-blue-purple … until 9:15 pm. Susan, who did her artist training in Sweden, concocting a traditional Swedish “mid-summer’s” wild salmon feast. Doesn’t get much better …

(Whoops, I’ll be in Kiev this time next week; I understand there are now tours of Chernobyl … charming thought.)
