The light is profoundly radiant, and everything is bursting huge. 

Two dollar bunches of kale are big enough to use for weeks. Moose wander in the neighborhood tearing down the tender shoots of trees profuse with growth. 

Even still, each day holds about five minutes less daylight than the day before. So, in the midst of the abundance, one cannot help but feel the drive to store for a coming time that is darker, and scarcer.
