Three things I’m grateful for:

  1. a six-hour phone and Internet outage today = six hours of uninterrupted writing
  2. seeing a comment from an old friend on this blog
  3. Google, for putting the entire LIFE magazine photo archive online:

  “Another picture I hope to be remembered by is this one of the drum majorrehearsing at the University of Michigan. It was early in the morning, and Isaw a little boy running after him, and all the faculty children in the playingfield ran after the boy, and I ran after them. This is a completely spontaneous, unstaged picture.”   – Alfred Eisenstaedt
