Flashback: summer music festivals, cycling in an August rainstorm, writing my final grad school papers lying in front of the fire eating Thai food, dancing to the the Allman Brothers at a Shenandoah trailhead, noting during a sticky Dodge Colt excursion that Bakersfield, California is the hottest location in the covenantal US, taking a community ed course on the jazz greats?
