On a side note I saw some magic last night. I was walking down to check the mail last night and I looked over at the moon (which isn't uncommon for me to do). For a second I thought there was a giant bird flying in the sky, but then I realized it was a kite. I'm fond of kites.

This one was floating above the apartment building across the way. When I went to see who was flying it, I discovered it was flying itself. It seems the string got caught on a nearby telephone line. Today it seems to have crash landed on a roof, but perhaps it will find a way to take flight once more. I hope so!
