Today is Thursday and the weather just screams that we talk about Beautiful Things. Here are three from the last week:
1. A few weeks ago I dropped my business card into a pot to win a free lunch for me and some coworkers at a nearby pizzeria. I won. Today, lunch was gratis at Ella’s for me and 8 of my colleauges. Somehow things got a little mixed up and the guy who was supposed to tell us about financial planning in exchange for this lunch didn’t show. It was confusing for a while, but delicious!
2. The leaves have started turning on some of the trees and bushes in my neighborhood. Some of the ones on 21st Street have turned a gorgeous scarlet. It’s an omen of chilly weather to come, but presented in a lovely way.
3. Andre Agassi and James Blake were still playing when CBS came back with their late night re-cap coverage. They were in the fifth set, which they eventually took to a tie-break. It was amazing to watch the prowess, energy, and enthusiasm these two men from different generations of tennis brought to the game. Agassi eventually won the match, but it could have gone either way. And you got the feeling that while they both wanted to win, they would have been satisfied to lose to their opponent in such a well-matched battle.
