:: Questions ::

Today was a great day.  I worked all morning (productively, at that) and then met Brian to have lunch with Evan at daycare (it was Bring Your Parents To Lunch Day or something like that -- they're always celebrating special days at daycare) before heading off to campus to take care of some business and work a bit more on my dissertation while basking shamelessly in the sun like an undergrad.  Well, not quite like an undergrad.

My day raises three very important questions:

(1) Is there anything cuter than a baby sitting in a small chair at a small table?

(2) Why can't it stay April forever?  A corollary to this: why can't I always work on my dissertation while sitting on a nice bench beneath a flowering Magnolia tree?

(3) Um, why were there hundreds of pinwheels all lined up today on campus like so many spokes in a pinwheel wheel?  I can't seem to figure it out, but I have to say, it was pretty awesome.  When the wind picked up and blew them it was all sunlight and flash and flutter.  You can see a few glints in the image below but you really need video to get the full effect.

Awww, how cute are Evan and his dad? The pinwheels kind of remind me of a small-scale version of something like Christo's yellow umbrellas that he did out here in the Tejon Pass here in SoCal. If you're familiar. I like the pinwheels better.

Simplify your questions, but make them general. Pinwheels not included.
