I just wanted to mention this magical moment on the subway I experienced. I got on kind of late in the evening, and I had a novel with me. I opened it up, really voracious about tucking into it, and glanced around me. The seats were about 1/3 full. And what do you know but everyone seated or standing in my vicinity was reading a book instead of fiddling on a piece of electronica. It was quaint and cool in an old school way. I don't think everyone needs to hand in their iPhones, but it's nice to still see people enjoying a good read.
Had some good old fashioned silly times with good old friends and family tonight at my brother in law's birthday. Happy weekend.
