I'm still catching up on everything (as per my post below), and feel like I've made barely a dent in the mountain of work and correspondence that piled up during my long absences this winter and spring. <sigh> It's a fresh and gorgeous June day here in Devon, with the sun spilling gold onto emerald-green hills and the wild ponies nuzzling new-born foals on the Commons. Yet I walked to my office in the village this morning with dragging feet, overwhelmed by the tasks that lay ahead, barely registering all the beauty around me....
And that's no way to live one's life.
So here's a video that always makes me laugh, to get the day off to a happier start. I've posted it before (on the old Endicott blog) so some of you will have seen it already ... but it's worth repeating, in case anyone else also needs their spirits brightened today. (And this seems to be a slightly longer version.) I defy anyone to stay down in the dumps with Ozomatli around. God, I love these guys.
This one goes out to Midori, who has had her own share of burdens to carry this spring -- yet has not only managed to maintain a terrific blog but to finish a novel too. Girlfriend, you are an inspiration.
