Pick Me Ups

When I've been feeling down (it happens, especially since my heel is all tingly again), here are a few things that have brightened my spirits:
  • the "weehawken" baby red-tailed hawk, Pip, born 18 days ago after experts said the egg (which had been shown via live streaming on the NYTimes for weeks!) wasn't viable;
  • the young man, paralyzed in a car accident five years ago, who walked across the stage at his graduation thanks to new spinal stimulation technology (funded by the Christopher and Dana Reeves Foundation, no less);
  • the woman in Tuscaloosa who found her cat three weeks after tornadoes destroyed her home, and it was caught on video!
