I love this rock which was too big to carry home, and it belongs on the beach anyway! At some time, it must have been molten in the bowels of the earth. It's got somewhat of the adorable bulky quality of the manatee, or the elephant. Also a sort of ineffable patience.
The weather has been very hot today. Tonight I went to the Township meeting, to watch America in action. Many things about finishing the new fire hall reminded me of when I was involved in building and refurbishing libraries. Things have to be done correctly and following rules and procedures, and yet as cheaply as possible. Your tax dollars at work . . .
