Summer is too generous a season to limit my learning curve to a wee bunny slope.
A mere 10 lessons to be learned, I think not.
As I sit at my kitchen table ignoring autumn’s various and persistent calling cards, I ponder a few more epiphanies from the waning days of summer on Vashon Island. Clogged gutters, unplanted fall flower bulbs, sooty chimneys and rutted drives will have to wait a little longer; I’m not quite ready to let go of the fairest season.
Summer on Vashon Island
What I Learned: Part II
1. Putting the shine on the apple takes little effort.
2. August moons can steal your heart.
3. Some omnivores are stalwart carnivores.
4. Health food: a BLT covers all of the major food groups.
5. Some farm hands are more about the eating, less about the picking.
6. Diet food (see floor) is best left to those on a diet.
7. Sometimes you just have to spell it out for people.
8. Road trips are always better with sidekicks.
Naivete Trust is a friend who stores 15 cases of wine in your cellar (…hiccup).
10. Never take a long nap next to a kiwi vine.
