It’s a rainy, post-holiday weekend Tuesday here in the Midwest, and this blogger is digging away at business and tax law projects.
There was no Improv last week due to the July 4th holiday break, and resuming tomorrow night will be interesting. Will we be out of form? Will we be reenergized? Will Zap, Zap, Zop have new meaning to me (probably stretching there)?
So today, in lieu of a longer post, I offer three things to deepen, or brighten, rainy Tuesday.
1) Best TED Talk ever – time-lapse nature photography and Brother David Steindl-Rast on Gratitude. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2egMSliB8DE

My name is Mike. I am a bookaholic.
We went to the Ann Arbor Book Festival on Saturday. A street blocked for authors, publishers, and booksellers, displaying their wares on a gorgeous summer afternoon. It also included a pub crawl, or “book crawl” of authors doing readings Thursday and Friday night, and all day Saturday at Ann Arbor book stores and watering holes. I settled into Aunt Agatha’s Mystery Book Store with Karen Dionne’s launch of The Killing: Uncommon Denominator, based on the television show.
