Today's Doyle Moment

Brought to you by Kiersten Marek:

Have a Melancholy Lughnasadh

A gentle, wistful melancholy, that is. Lughnasadh marks a cross-quarter day on the Celtic calendar. The beginning of harvest and the month when the light begins to turn more golden and the sun moves lower in the sky.

Thank you for this--I was away this week, playing "educator" at Discovery Education in Maryland. I missed my tides more than I had in the past.

I suppose as my time gets more dear, or rather my awareness of my mortality becomes more acute, I will become less and less tolerant of cement and glass and apps. Oh, I enjoy the trappings of civilization, enjoy them very much.

But I enjoy the mudflats more. And the news from the front, my friend, is not good, not good.

Did get a chance to chat (with 50 others) with Steve Robinson, Domestic Policy guy leading STEM initiative for Mr. Obama. I may be over-reading this, but I thought I detected a glint of understanding with our frustration with Duncan.
