A Crayon Day

“It was a green summer day like what a child would draw, a crayon day with a few white cumulus children’s clouds, and the sun with yellow radiance lines sticking out.” ~Garrison Keillor, in Pontoon ©2007

I’ve read several of Keillor’s “Lake Wobegon” books, and Pontoon sticks out as my favorite.

It can be very dark in places, but it’s not the brooding, melancholy darkness that stifled some of his other books. It’s more balanced; it’s more obvious that the darkness is a part of life, not a way of life.
