It has been beautiful weather this week. Spectacular, really. Seems my whining about no spring, winter to summer, blah blah blah was totally uncalled for. It's early, but I've had the top down a few times already. I've driven a little more slowly, taken the long way home more often. Consequently I've been appreciating the places I live a little bit more. Some of these roads are ones I travelled daily back in the late 90's when I first worked here. It's easy to take it for granted. But that would be a shame. Instead I'm trying to take particular notice of the things I pass everyday. Thus begins a weekly series about inspiration and appreciation, a few shapshots at a time.
