...He was in no hurry...



“… He was in no hurry. He wasn’t so much running as drifting, anonymous as the morning. … He left his guitar under one of the big snaking oaks in the front yard,

then strolled back up the road. … He saw the oak tree, the spread and penetrant shade of it, roots like claws, acorns, leaf litter, and beneath it, his guitar propped

casually against the trunk. …”
