Thoroughly enjoyed this, Mark!

Loved the part about sitting outside in the summer because the house was hot. My best friend’s family, with whom I spent most of my summertime hours, had a second, smaller kitchen in their basement. That’s where summer meals were prepared. So much cooler. And, my friend and I often slept on their huge back porch. Two little girls sleeping on an unlocked porch to escape the heat. Never a worry. Certainly couldn’t do that now.

Different people, different times.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
