Garance Doré‘s photo of Cisco below makes me yearn for summer upstate. It’s a certain green on the trees, a verdant lushness that lets only little dollops of pure sun through. The air is clear and the moment is rich and peaceful. There’s nothing humid or stifling or rushed or impersonal. It’s like the first fresh-morning dive into the cool lake. It’s why I’m going back.
The bluff on Keuka Lake: for me, this, plus family, friends, dogs, garden tomatoes, and a late-night bonfire on lakeshore pebbles, is it.
