Today I learned two things: 1) the importance for properly watermarking one's photos and 2) that fireworks won't get launched in the rain. For the first time ever that I can remember, there were no fireworks dazzling the skies due to rain. There were no ooohh's and ahhhhh's from the crowds, no white clouds lingering behind cascading streams of glory, no star spangles or banner waves of golden grain. I, like many of my friends on Facebook, watched those shooting stars from the comfort of a cool, dry, and comfortable living room via the good old boob tube. How important are fireworks on the 4th of July? If you think about it, just as important as watermarking. Fireworks, in a weird way, are our country's watermark. It says, "Hey, this day is ours and we are going to make sure everyone knows it." So today, I too became independent. I claimed my photos. This is my territory. Even if I didn't shoot a rocket into the air. It's a day to celebrate!
Make every day a celebration,
