Paradisical

Sunday, the seventh day, the day god said to man, go ahead and live in paradise if that's what you really want, but I'm afraid you'll find it's as full of illusions as I said it was.

Sunday, day of rest, day spent strolling through the garden, looking for blooming magnolias, seeing that the blooms had been swept out to sea by the storms, the rain and wind but that the blossoms were plentiful.

Sunday, in the shade of the redwood grove, standing under the lace curtains of the smaller branches of the redwoods, looking up, seeing nothing but tree and a little sky, not hearing a thing.
