Late August cultivation

Where others use lawnmowers, here in Jeziorki we use tractors. Looking out east from our garden, I get a strong deja vu thing about 1950s America again. Only the satellite dish makes the scene look contemporary.

Neuroscientists will say that deja vus are all just a matter of electrical impuses in a certain part of our brain. I don't buy that. My flashbacks are too consistent in terms of time and place (just had another one in the kitchen). USA, 1920s to 1950s. Here in Jeziorki, these flashbacks are triggered with magnificent regularity and intensity, which give me a strong suspicion that indeed, I am living a blessed afterlife, right now.
