weekend reading | Season's End

In the three weeks since I came back to Massachusetts, the weather has been unbearably humid. It's eighty degrees well into the night and the air is wet and thick. On Thursday, the house was so stiff that Tyler and I sat out on the porch until after 10 o'clock - just waiting for a breeze. To pass the time, we walked up the street to the gas station for some laffy taffy. The neighborhood was dark and the bugs were humming and it felt like such a teenarger-y thing to do.  

It made me appreciate the incredible presence of weather like this: an undeniable everywhere. It brings time and routine to a grinding halt, reminding us not to press on too quickly.
