Enjoying this summer:
The music of PBS's Wolf Hall (as well as the show itself!)
Sally Mann's utterly captivating memoir
homemade ice creams from this cookbook
this live song,
and all the fresh fruit we can eat.

July has been an island this year,
distinct from the months that came before it,
and distinct,
I imagine,
from the months that will follow.
It was time for a change,
so I accepted a new job,
and the month has been a mix
of finishing up and farewelling the old job,
taking a pricelessly expansive break,
and looking forward
to the chapter that will come next.
