Some Velvet Morning

It's a soft Summer day here, not hot, little breezes tease the windchimes. The sky is clear and the kind of blue I've only ever seen in the eyes of a man I used to know. Squirrels chitter and birds chirp and it's hard to believe anything bad could happen. Peace is good.

And then there are things to ponder in the bright sunshine...

Derek is taking a computer programming course at Udacity - a free online university. Of course, there are no credits to transfer. Yet.
