It had been like when you’re a little boy in the woods and fields  and on the dusk homeward walk you did it all with your eyes to the  ground, scuffling, thinking, whistling, like little Indian boys must  feel when they follow their striding fathers from Russian River to  Shasta two hundred years ago, like little Arab boys following their  fathers, their fathers’ trails; that singsong little joyful solitude,  nose sniffling, like a little girl pulling her brother home on the sled  and they’re both singing little ditties of their imagination and making  faces at the ground and just being themselves before they have to go in  the kitchen and put on a straight face again for the world of  seriousness.
