Ambition this shall tempt to rise,
And moody Madness laughing wild
Amid severest woe.
-from Thomas Gray's "Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College"
A beautiful day
Early fall days in Connecticut don't get much nicer than it was today. 60's, sunny and to top it all off, today was the first day of the Civil Union law. I hope that this will end up being just a first step on the road to full equality for gay couples.
