‎”the first week of august hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. the weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, & those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of august is motionless, & hot.”
