Canoe ride


I've come to the conclusion that I would be happiest conducting all life's business from a canoe at dusk. Telecommuting to the office! Painting my toenails! Paddling around and relaxing like there ain't no care in the world 'cept thunderstorms and running out of bug spray!



Night canoes are the quiet thrill of my life. I think it has to do with living in New York for so long where actual physical darkness doesn't occur. (And if it did, it wouldn't bode well.) It's nice to finally get out on the pond at Elmwood, it puts the frenetic pace of city life into perspective. In other words, city life ain't all that.

  7. a frost poem called "the most of it"...you must print it out, or better yet scrawl it out on paper and crumple it into your pocket, and read it tomorrow night when you are canoeing.
