A Day of Miracle and Wonder



These are the days of miracle and wonder,
This is the long distance call,
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all,
The way we look to a distant constellation
That's dying in a corner of the sky,
These are the days of miracle and wonder
 
-Paul Simon

 
Last night kicked off the 2013 edition of Shark Week on Discovery Channel.  It just might be my favorite week of the year.  Of course, as a professional courtesy I root for the sharks.  And judging by Discovery Channel's utterly hilarious commercial, I am not the only one....
 
 
Yesterday might have been one of the Top Ten Day of the year here 'NTSG.  Rare is the day in the summer when I turn off the central air conditioning in favor of natural ventilation.  Yesterday was such a day.  My early morning run was spectacular (the conditions anyway - the results were decidedly mediocre).   There is nothing quite as exhilarating as running on such a perfect weather day.  All of the sweat one works up is from the effort being put forth on the run.  Such days are few and far between in the summer here in the State of Concrete Gardens.  To have one served up for us in the early days of August was nothing short of extraordinary.  
 
Here's to hoping that you took full advantage of it too.
