Happy Independence Day
Hope you all had a great day at a big barbecue with fireworks. If I was still living in lovely downtown Noho, I might be at Maki and Jamie's annual bash at the Marina right now, but I'm not sure. I'm in a dark mood and spending a couple of hours poolside this afternoon didn't lighten it.
Politics have really got me down today. I know too much and somehow I don't feel like celebrating. I feel more like painting my house like this flag or this one. It feels like our country has gone all upside down and backwards.
But wait..... A change of mood. I had written that much when the phone rang. I just spent a couple of hours with a completely unexpected caller, a veritable pillar of Blogtopia, who was endlessly entertaining. There were fireworks. Literally.
I love surprises.
