So this is what bliss feels like? Sam thought, momentarily, as her eyes were closed, basking in the sunshine of a do-nothing day, surrounded by people she loves, near a body of water were she to get too hot, a bottle of Leinkugel’s Summer Shandy beside her, a good book in her bag, should the opportunity presents itself.
