It was a lovely sunset today, so I thought I would share it with you. The days are, little by little getting longer. DSCF0841 DSCF0844 DSCF0845

You may have heard about the legalization of marijuana in much of Colorado. As of yesterday, people could legally buy pot at the numerous “green dispensaries” that have popped up one to a block (at least) in downtown Denver. For the second day in a row, as I was heading for the bus for home, I saw a line wrapped around the block outside of a particular dispensary, and it gave me pause. I’m not opposed to pot. It’s fine. But it saddens me that people are standing in line to buy it. What happens to them next? Do they go home and get stoned? It just seems like a waster of time, life, and spirit. And money. One ounce of pot is selling for $400. I don’t know about you, but there are a lot of lasting things that I could spend $400 on. And I’d still remember them the next day. I hope the hype dies down shortly, and people realize that being present in the here and now is priceless.

Quote of the day: “The moment you fall in love feels like it has centuries behind it, generations – all of them rearranging themselves so this precise, remarkable intersection could happen. In your heart, in your bones, no matter how silly you know it is, you feel that everything has been leading to this, all the secret arrows were pointing here, the universe and time itself crafted this long ago, and you are just now realizing it, you are just now arriving at the place you were always meant to be.” — David Levithan
