The grass never needs mowed here. It never gets more than a couple of inches high. It stays just a nose above the water. You can see the water glisten in the sunlight. In the evening we go out to spear the flat fish in the shallow valleys. The flat fish glisten in the sunlight too. They flash different colors, mostly purple and gold, but when you spear them and pull them out they are just silver-grey. The colors are a trick of the structure of their scales. I suppose that is all any color is: just a trick of some structure.
