List of favorite things limited to discovered this year?  Hmm, in no particular order:

  • Key Lime Pie Ice Cream

  • Bill Cunningham pieces on the New York Times website
  • Eating Pomegranate yogurt and pomegrate seeds.

  • When my wife completes an incredibly difficult trail run.
  • Dietrich Bronhoffer quotation, “We have learned a bit too late in the day that action springs not from thought but from a readiness for responsibility.”
  • Cruising Alaska and seeing lots and lots of bald eagles.
  • Running through the woods in Alaska and having phone service.
  • When Jorge Posada comes out to catch his last game as a Yankee then hits a bloop in the last inning to get on base.
  • When notifications come that those certain bloggers have published.
  • Michael Grabner on a breakaway.
  • Writing a blog that I want to read over and over again.
  • The massively politically incorrect way my blackberry autocorrects the term “Hat Trick”.
  • Defense witness saying “I have some thoughts on the correctness of that application”.
  • Being around cousin Bonnie and her family for dinner.   Having coffee in Starbucks before a race and discussing Lent.
