Well this is a bit of a catastrophe. As of this writing, it’s actually Oct. 6, 2012, and I currently have SIXTY drafts stretching back to this one from January 15, all of which I would like to publish by, say, the end of 2012. Here is the first step thither.
I was on an enclosed porch with a big industrial-scale electric stove (with chunky heating elements rectangular in cross section) with the heating elements up around chest height, along the exterior wall opposite the one interior wall; I had a pizza-pan-like implement, except that it was doubled like a waffle iron, to cook things in on the stove. It was a sunny mid-morning; the seemingly east-facing wall behind the stove was maybe translucent so that it was showing tree shadows from beyond.
