As I walked out one late summer morning

It is a kind of dread and a thrill to know while I walked through the woods, smelling of pine

that below me on the patio close to the pool beside the kitchen

my book was being discussed.

I paused for a while and heard, I think, Murakami's Wind Up Bird

then came down. Go away, they said, we're not finished yet.

They were all very kind.

Those paths are gorgeous.

They felt good too - shaded, and then, when I walked I could smell the pine needles and herbs that I crushed crushed underfoot.
