This cool, bright morning filled me with a kind of jubilation, sorta. Beech Hill birds and butterflies, cheerful stone masons expertly at work on the gate, Jack in good spirits. I got a few decent photos—even a video or two.

And this evening brought a loud, riotous thunderstorm that passed without a power interruption.

A day to love, all in all.
