One definition of joy: a warm summer evening with friends that includes a chorus of cicadas, hot links grilled on a fire in the back yard, cool beer, some sparring, racing around a track, a few Perseid meteors, and swimming in Clinton lake beneath the waxing gibbous Moon and distant lightning with coyotes or foxes singing in the nearby forest.

Now THIS feels like vacation.
