It was a little warm, but the air smelled good and was filled with the sounds of birds and bees and dragonflies. It was particularly pleasant whenever a cloud passed over the sun for a few minutes; the air cooled down and a cool breeze picked up.

I’m back home now and about to get started writing. I’ve gone through the first 4 sections of “Graveyard Shift”. Part 5 requires a little rewriting and that’s what I’m starting on next.
