Easy August: August 30, 2015

Relaxing in Kensington Gardens

EVERYONE, especially in August, especially in England, can bring to mind the peculiar mood which follows a long day of exercise in the open air. The body is tired out; the mind washed smooth by countless gallons of fresh air, and for some reason everything seems dangerously simple, and the most complex and difficult decisions obvious and inevitable. There is something truly or falsely spiritual about this state, and it is one which if prolonged may easily lead to disaster.

Review of Beyond, by John Galsworthy. (30 August, 1917.)   
(CW 63;  E2 152)
