michigan seems like a dream to me now 1

It’s good to be back home and to walk familiar paths. The perimeter of North Park Lake is filled; the shallow waters are covered with lily-pads and the shores are littered with wild hibiscus swaying in the evening breeze. (the spider web, between the two large flowers, is delicately surreal)

Left Northern Ontario on Tuesday afternoon and drove I-75 South to Oxford; David Sedaris’ new book Calypso kept me laughing all the way down. (the portion after saginaw is tedious, but david sedaris’ voice made me forget the drudgery, the long stretches, that michigan voted for that crazy man in white house) Visited with Rose-and-Derrick, Mary-and-Domenic and left to come home Thursday morning.
