Highlights of the Day

From my high-in-the-sky vantage point, Monday to Friday…

There are days when the sight fills me with happiness, like on a cloudless blue-sky Friday afternoon (rich with the promise of the approaching weekend), but there are also awe-inspiring days when nature turns on the waterworks and puts on a light-show while the orchestra bangs and crashes its accompaniment.
