Gone Fishin’ 2020
There comes a time in every man’s life when he has to admit that stepping back, even if only for a moment, is the wise thing to do. So I’m going to act on that insight and take myself to the beach for a few days. Okay, I’ll take the rest of the brood, too.
I’ve always found the last days of August bring a bit of poignancy with them. No matter what Brian Wilson says, summer isn’t endless and these last lingering days are really a prelude to the glories of autumn. Savor them even as you watch them go. It’s such little things, I find, that feed my soul.
