Out in the middle of nowhere, we are seeing Cirque de Soleil at the

performance, so far, has been pretty amazing. And these seats, though
apparently far, are perfect.

We were already up north for a doctor’s appointment, so we stopped by

Some days it’s hard to imagine not being able to see this view.

I’m getting used to this gym business and really enjoying it. At least

I’m leaving home at a decent hour and the sky is about as blue as it
could be. The city is truly gorgeous when they’re set against these
