Enjoy your August. As one of our refrigerator magnets says, Live every day as if your a** is on fire. No finer philosophy was ever devised. No deeper sense of self is needed in the crazy days of summer.

Hope to see you at an upcoming event. Sign up for my sometimes-monthly e-postcard, and you’ll get the news as I know it.
