This, Blogger™ tells me, shall be my 166th post.
It is a cruel thing, returning to a city on the edge of a heat wave, having spent the fullness of a week beneath fairer skies and witness to the Atlantic’s infinite recitation upon the shore of a barrier island. Fire, was the island. (Fair Harbor to be specific.) What a singular place; so narrow- a wisp of a landmass (the word mass being used exceedingly loosely, here).
Completed The Alienist (Caleb Carr); also read The Stargazey (Martha Grimes), which I left at the house for future fans of the Richard Jury series; and finally, The Children of Hurin (Tolkien)– the darkest of the lot by far, as I realize now all of my beach reading selections were stacked with death!

Oh how I love being near to water in the summer. A balm to mind and body. (Being away from this computing machine also helps.)
