At some point last night — after a long day of shrub trimming and flower planting and bike riding out & around Ocean Drive despite recurrent fog and considerable traffic — it occurred to me that words don't matter much. Seriously. It's more about sights, sounds & sometimes just colors and what they evoke with or without lots of syllables ... right?? I mean, there are some good lyrics: to songs, days, life. And some things worth remembering, like Dewey Bunnell of America's comment during their show at the historic Casino Theatre last night (to benefit the Tennis Hall of Fame). He was trying to direct traffic to the band's website — — and in so doing advised fans: "Do not google America. That doesn't work."

I'll bear it in mind ...
