I had a great day today, a fun day. I didn't think much about my ancestors, did not grieve or worry about anything.
Before it got too hot, I walked down to the Capitol, then hung out for awhile at the Botanic Gardens. There was a nice breeze and I was wearing my new hat which has an enormous brim. I feel sheltered by that hat. It's an excellent hat.
I took a bunch of pictures, my favorite thing. When it got too hot, I took the Metro home.
This afternoon I worked on clients, another favorite thing.
Right now I'm drinking a Tanqueray martini, watching a big storm roll in. Looks like it's going to be a toad strangler, as we used to say in the midwest.
This is the kind of day I hope to enjoy all summer long, a day of modest ambitions, simple pleasures, good work, delicious food and tasty intoxication.
Life is good and I am grateful. Shalom.
