Unedited Past from an Email to Zeph

"I always think happily of propping my feet up on the dash of the pick-up with the windows down and my bare legs covered in sweat in the summer heat. Definitely one of the happiest times of my life. In many ways it was a summer in my life. Not THE summer of my life, but one summer. I guess I'm sort of going through a spring now that is still chilled from a harsh and lengthy winter.
