Today Is Beautiful

"Summer afternoon - summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language."

~Henry James

While many people are still suffering the ravages of Hurricane Irene, Chicago has at last achieved that rarity that is a perfect summer day: it is sunny and comfortable, and a cool, friendly breeze is blowing.

I am so grateful for these rare and perfect days that I feel obligated to spend as much time outside as possible. Hence this short post!!
