You want a bath; mountains, sky, lake all around. The other day there were two rainbows in a row astride across the mountains in a complete semicircle - a beautiful sight. All I miss is really you [[strikethrough]] especially [[/strikethrough]]. The moon is on the lake this week and the whole world looks unreal, enchanted.
  Of an evening to [[strikethrough]] I [[/strikethrough]] make things gay [[strikethrough]] er [[/strikethrough]] and keep the nightly visitors out I start a fire. The flames crackle and light up the place like one of those popular prints at Macy's. And I myself look like one of the moon-struck actors in The Moonlight Sonata (Every piano teacher has a print). I generally wander or read (most of my reading material is gone already. I shall have to get a new supply).
