Thursday night, the Cubs became the NL Central champions. I've been walking on sunshine ever since.
Saturday night I went to see Eight Days a Week, the documentary by Ron Howard, at the Music Box Theater. It was a delight. Seeing Paul and John sharing a mic, sharing their genius with such exuberance, lifted me higher, higher, higher. Watching it on the big screen in a grand old movie palace with a huge, diverse audience -- the line wrapped around the block! -- was thrilling. Sharing the experience with my nephew was best of all.
He's such a great kid. Smart and funny. And so geeky. (A high school junior whose new idol is FDR.) Love him so.
