A young woman—one of our neighbors—just walked by in racing stride.  She had an iPod plugged in and two spaniels on leashes.  Efficient.

Do you think she noticed the big new yellow esperanza blossoms?

Hat tip to Jill at Brilliant at Breakfast for her thoughts and the link to a blogger, John Brown of Kansas, who is “dropping out” of the commenting biz.  He writes so well about perspective and priorities and anger and what’s really important.  And about accepting that it will be okay.

I wonder if my young neighbor knows that esperanza means hope.


Today’s best one-liner

From Andrew Sullivan and The Daily Dish . . .

[Back to the 1990’s] when Bill Clinton was a less impressive version of Barack Obama.

Heh.  Sullivan goes on to quote a NYT’s piece about superdelegates’ reluctance to support candidate Clinton.  That would be Bill Clinton.  In 1992.

Hillary and the end game

What she said!  What she said!

Jill is most definitely Brilliant at Breakfast.
