Bedtime stories for grownups, in which nothing much happens, you feel good and then you fall asleep.
Our story tonight is called “The Dog Days of Summer” and it’s a story about the a day with a best friend. It’s also about a cucumber picked from the garden, meeting friends in the park the most important lessons we learn from the animals we share our lives with.
Our story tonight is called “A Letter in an Envelope” and it’s a story about the everyday magic of messages sent between friends. It’s also about peanut butter spread on toast, a favorite spot on the back porch, and a lifelong habit of saving stories.
Our story tonight is called “At the Summer Fair” and it’s a story about a yearly tradition and how it changes in the different summers of your life. It’s also about plums taken from the icebox, a handmade cup wrapped in paper and strolling along the river as the streetlights blink on above you.
