also the lounging summer fare, a game of scrabble. m only beat me by five points on this one. but i spelled ai, which is a three-toed sloth, in case you're wondering. and vrouw, which is a dutch woman. i picture her with a white hat on, but do what you will in your own mind with such a fun yet reasonable word.
I have taken akin to this line of poetry from Before the Storm by Louise Gluck, so I thought I'd share it outloud:
The mountain stands like a beacon, to remind the night that the earth exists,
that it mustn’t be forgotten.
it's a lovely summary of thought.
