A Profound Look Back at the Week: April 19-25

It has been another cloudy and generally climatically unpleasant week with only two exceptions: for two hours on Tuesday and Wednesday, the sun shone. During those two hours (and a total of forty more minutes) I was driving. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: April 19-25
