Today is the last full day of summer. It is a hot, sunny afternoon here in Washington, but the shorter days and frenzied schedules mean that autumn is moving in.
This morning I began the first of five weeks on a grand jury. M - F / 9 - 5 ~ no phone, no camera, no glimpse of the sun (yes, yes, I know all about the importance of doing my civic duty...but seriously people, this is my 8th jury service!). Needless to say, things will be a bit topsy-turvy as I try to keep up with life and work. What exactly it means for this space over the next five weeks is unclear, but I do hope to stop by as much as I can with something nice (which may not be so easy after a day spent listening to some of the worst humanity has to offer). On a positive note, I have enlisted the help of several friends who have agreed to help scatter a bit of sunshine along the way!
Speaking of sunshine...have you seen Mr. Hampton's latest painting?
