I swear, God has a sense of humor



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!)

I'm sure our loving God has a sense of humor. I see Italy. When did our presidents get to be younger than us!!! Looking forward to your fiction.

Natalie keeps her eyes open and invites opportunity. Very nice.

It does sort of look like a compressed map of the world, doesn't it? Excellent!

I wanted to thank you for recommending the TED video on creativity. I know I will enjoy it!
