This takes place in Vermont, on a lake in mid-July. Alex is sitting with their dogs listening to the birds chirp and the trombone scales. There are only a few people scattered around the lake, a boat and two canoes on the water. Alex is just skipping rocks and letting the dogs chase each toss before they sink to the bottom of the lake. Hearing them paddle and splash is one of Alex’s favorite Sunday activities. The air is dense with summer humidity, they can smell someone making a bonfire on the shore. Next Alex begins to play his favorite tune, All You Need is Love by the Beatles.
