I did not take the above picture, but I could have. I was driving home from the studio today with my thoughts totally seeped in the project that I had just been working on, when a deer calmly ambled across Chevy Chase Circle, causing four lanes of traffic to screech to a simultaneous halt. It's a hot summer day in the city and everyone is zooming around town getting ready for the holiday weekend. Then this wild animal just comes out of nowhere and forces us to literally stop in our tracks and notice the world around us. It was funny little wake-up call, and I'm taking it as a sign not to miss a minute of life this weekend! Happy Fourth of July, Friends!
