The sun takes forever to set...


...on Long Island in the summer.

I don't know if has been the endless lacrosse playing, rolling around in the grass, watching the fire flies or eating the world best bagels, but I wish I found out about Long Island sooner.

I owe much to Matt and Michelle for bringing me out there for a large portion of the last month. Among the many Florida licenses plates I feel close to home, and of course among the compassion and joy.

This song has nothing to do with Long Island, but I found the lyric otherwise proper:

"Makin' points with the stewardess high over long island sound
Shes also spending some time on the island
Too much city madness gives her the blues
They make a date to go dancin' and dinin'."
-Jimmy Buffett; The Weather Is Here, I Wish You Were Beautiful
