The temp at our front desk after coming into my office: Are you playing Jimmy Buffet?

Me: No, it’s The Cranberries.

Her: Oh, that’s so cute. You like the old stuff, huh?

Three beautiful things from the past week:

1. As Rudi and I were cycling home last week along the C&O Canal Towpath, trying to beat the dusk, I begged a breather. While we were stopped, a couple passed us, headed in the opposite direction. “Nice legs!” the girl shouted to Rudi. And she’s right.

2. As I take my first sip of tea in the morning or late at night, I can feel the warmth and relaxation spreading through me as the hot liquid pours down my throat. It’s one of the nicest sensations.

3. The dam on the Potomac was our turnaround point on Sunday’s bike ride. We had paused to watch a heron standing in the middle of the river when a bald eagle swooped down for a drink. He was impressive if a little far off. The next day, while we were paddling in the pool, two bald eagles soared over us. Who would have thought they’d just fly over the city that way? It really was amazing!
