Terrific post Jessica. Funny, I was just thinking about the way our experience of time changes as we age. I think I may have listened to same program you did and -- get this -- it may have been, of all people, Jane Fonda explaining why summer vacation seems endless to a child b/c of all the new things to learn and see.
And thanks too for the Ammons excerpt. Whenever I'm Ithaca, as I've been all summer, I think of him.

Thanks, Stacey! And that's too funny about Jane Fonda. I must have completely blocked that part out...
Wishing you a childfully-slow rest of your summer in Ammons-land!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
