Summer in the sticks

"Just to live in the country is a full-time job. 
You don't have to do anything. 
The idle pursuit of making a living is pushed to one side, 
where it belongs, in favor of living itself, 
a task of such immediacy, variety, beauty, 
and excitement that one is powerless to resist its wild embrace."

— E.B. White
