First let me say that summer is kicking my ass. I love the heat, but I should have started digging a pool the moment the snow started melting in January. Perhaps it is the weather or perhaps it is the attitude of the 3 (soon to turn 4) year old that inhabits every moment between sleeping and sleeping again, but I am spent. And so this week I have had nothing to give. My care cup is empty (a Gabe-ism for those in the know). Lucky for me there are things like the NY Times Slide Show feature. I just spent the last half hour sitting hang-jaw clicking through the excellent archive and recommend you do the same.
