Golden afternoon

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

"Golden afternoon" is a title of short story by Andrzej Sapkowski, one of the best fantasy writer in Poland. It starts with:

Obviously, such a bliss cannot be achieved just, without previous preparation and without the plan, having flopped in the horizontal position anywhere. No, my dear. It requires preceding activity, intellectual, as well as physical. For the idleness, as some says, needs to be elaborated. So not to lose a single one of exactly enumerated moments of which delicious afternoons is in the habit of being composed, I set about working. I went to forest and I entered in, disregarding the warning plate: BEWARE THE JABBERWOCK, placed on the edge. Without haste, fatal in such cases, I sought out the tree corresponding to canons of the art and I climbed up. Next I selected the appropriate bough, being pointed in choice orevolutionibus orbium coelestium. Too wisely? So I will say straighter: I chose the bough, on which sun will be warming my fur through all of the afternoon..."
