To sip coffee, walk the dogs by the ocean wide-eyed, breath deeply and listen attentively to absorb all the sights, scents and sounds that abound. I hope it's infectious. 
Much love to you and yours.

*Top Quote: Deckard - Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

**Second Quote: Deckard & Rachael - Blade Runner (1982)

***Postscript - As I mentioned was my plan, I made it to Blade Runner 2049. To say I merely saw it would be a terrible understatement. Sitting dead-center in an IMAX theater, I can truly report that I have never been more immersed in a movie. The conception, writing, acting, effects, editing, cinematography and directing was all top-notch. The original score, sampled songs and the overall sound was beyond description! No spoilers here - just a delight in reporting the that the story answered many old questions, but raised just as many new ones!

*NASA reports that 63 percent of the sun will be covered today in Boston, MA. 

The moon will begin passing in front of the sun at 1:28 p.m., the height of the eclipse will occur here at 2:47 p.m. and the sun will appear spherical again by 4 p.m.

One way to view the eclipse is with a pair of eclipse glasses. Without them, looking directly into the sun can cause permanent retina damage or even blindness.

Watching the eclipse without simultaneously listening to RFW could lead to severe depression and unsightly sun-spots!
