Best moment combining exercise and the natural world: A mid-August sunset over the Navesink River while kayaking with my wife.
Best documentary: Chowchilla
Best party: The surprise my daughter and I put together for my wife to celebrate our fortieth wedding anniversary. My new son-in-law earned points for suggesting the party be held at the same bar where my wife and I met in April of 1978.
Best reading-related moment: While browsing together in a bookstore, it dawned on me how lucky I am to have a life partner who enjoys spending time this way. Our mutual love of reading is such a gift.
Happy New Year!
