Everyday is Marvelous
The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color.

Benny Goodman & his orchestra with Peggy Lee — How Long Has This Been Going On? (1941)

There were chills up my spine,
And some thrills I can’t define.
Listen, sweet—I repeat:
How long has this been going on?
