Greetings from my perch in South Austin. I know you join me in savoring the promise of imminent weather relief; fantasies of the lush extravagance of outdoor dining (mosquito-free, no less), perchance to take a post-prandial amble in comfort. Tossing a ball in the yard. So inured are we to our cabin-bound reality that the possibilities of escape, loose-limbed enjoyment are somehow foreign. We will need to re-learn the sensation of relief, to open ourselves to experience the personal rejuvenative springtime which arrives so strangely autumnally. We envision deliverance from this oppression. It is coming soon. It must! There will be much jubilation.
