Mr Obama, you are not the only one today with a big birthday today. I have to wonder if you got a gift as cool as the one Natalie got today. I rather doubt it.
On our way to lunch, I asked Natalie (a seriously amazing writer, a cheerleader for my own efforts to craft fiction, a yoga instructor, a speaker of several languages, an avid reader, and a public health researcher) if she'd had any "signs" today about turning 30.
She casually looked at the sky ahead of us and said, "Yes. The world."
Have a look at the picture I shot with my iPhone (after I pulled to the side of the road).
Now, how do you beat that for a birthday present?
(Go on now, see if you can find Italy, Australia, Alaska, and the Aleutian Islands!)
