For some of us, it’s now springtime; for others, it’s autumn. Still others live near the equator, where the seasons are more subtle, but worth watching nonetheless. What do you see outside your window today? Feel free to send photos to share (email them as attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org).

Today, I wish you a deep understanding of how incomparably blessed we are by the ever-changing, endlessly unique sights we see through our own windows!
