“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” - Dr. Seuss


I went to work today because I called the wrong partner – if I’d asked E, she’d have told me to avoid the weather and stay home, and she was the only one who was even in the office! But the City wasn’t a bad place to be today. It was warm, there was no wind, the snow fell lightly (though constantly), and EVERYONE who was out was in a good mood.

When I left the office early, also in a euphoric mood, I tried to work out whether that was because of the semi-holiday, or because everyone who didn’t want to be out had stayed home, or whether it’s true that happiness in the US correlates to low population density. It was nice to go straight to the front of the line at the grocery store on the way home…

Or it could have been that I beat Beldr on the train in to work today, or that I was going to see R, or that I was finally getting over the killer cold I caught last week. But I don’t think it was just me; everyone was happy; and that never happens.

In short: ^_______^.
