There's a silvery sheen over everything these mornings, a satin glimmer to the world. Nothing mars the blue beauty of the sky, it stretches on forever, white to blue to cobalt. The shining sun means there is more to see, everything delineated and sharp. Objects that fade away when it's gray and rainy are suddenly demanding attention, silver shines, asphalt glitters, each leaf on each tree is an individual object to be noticed and taken into account. No visual slacking is permissible when the sun is shining in Sweden! Look! Look around you!

I used to be able to reply to LJ comments in Hotmail right in the body of the message, but a few weeks ago something happened and I can no longer do so. Has anyone else had this problem?

You know what? If I had a dollar bill for all the things I've done, there WOULD be a mountain of money piled up to my chin. Huh.

Places I Would Rather Be Right This Moment:
  • Sydney, Australia, hanging with Kathey and Russell, and courtesy
  • St. Thomas with my sister again
  • eating sushi, natch'
  • lying facedown on a massage table with my eyes rolled up in the back of my head
  • walking down Michigan Avenue in Chicago

I'll be sitting in a 2-day marketing group conference tomorrow and Wednesday with my new colleagues (!!) at this hotel in Gilleleje, Denmark. We get back Wednesday night just in time for me to make it to final choir rehearsal before our first concert on Saturday, so I won't be posting again until Thursday.

And, just so I have lots of comments to return to, I'd be thrilled if you (including you lurkers out there who never comment!) would do at least one of the following:

1. Ask me a question you'd like answered

2. Tell me something you'd like to see a photo of

3. Tell me a joke or a funny story

Be good while I'm gone. :)
