" In Big Sur there is a cottage that sits at the edge of a palisade. It is the last refuge before the high mountains that rises up like sentries to the rest of the country. When the air is clear you can see the coast run its length to the horizon, but when the fog rolls in it is masked and hidden as if a magician had waived his hand over the earth to erase it. "
"It's 1992 and fall is coming. The mornings have been slow to warm. The air is crisp and blows over the landscape to chill the leaves and ground. The sun has risen and a deep mist overtakes the road and tall grasses that are summer browned. "
