2 walks and a firefly

I went for two walks this evening to clear my head. The first time around I was trying to clear my head from the days thoughts, mostly work related, class and UML work for an application I am working on. I did a lot of white-boarding in my office today and that kind of thought usually takes it toll on me. The second walk was to work out some plot complications in a story I’m working on, and for a wonder, it worked!

Best of all, on that second walk, I saw my first firefly of the season. It lit up just as I walked by!

My vacation is just around the corner. 4 weeks from tomorrow!
