The End of Summer

Zane at Smokehouse for dinner after the last day of summer camp

The end of summer is rapidly approaching.  It's been a good one (although a bit hot for my tastes—I like the Bay Area much cooler than it has been recently).

Zane has finished up an incredibly active summer with UC Sport Camps where he spent every day in an ever-shifting mix of lacrosse, soccer, football, skateboarding, basketball, volleyball, baseball and swimming. He's turned into quite the little jock over the past few months. 

I've spent my summer working on the Intel Developer Forum (which just wrapped up Thursday last) and there is now a bit of a lull for me (although only a few day's worth) before it's on to the next things (a fun little Barbie™ event in Los Angeles, and a bunch of very exciting but NDA stuff for some other clients.)

Not feeling tip-top today, and Dana's out of town on business for the night... but we were hanging out on a bit of a playdate with Zane and his best-buddy Grayson... we got some pizza... played with Legos and did some drawing... they managed to turn my day around :)

The Eye In The House Of The Gods

This was taken a couple of days after the rainstorm.  I didn't take my camera with me on my run through the streets.

The Pantheon in Rome is my favorite place in the world and I've been obsessed with the idea of watching the rain come through the oculus ever since I visited the space as a young boy but unfortunately whenever I'm in Rome, it's sunny, hot, and bone-dry.

The last time I visited Rome the forecast was for hot, dry weather again but as my plane landed, it suddenly started to rain lightly. 

By the time I'd gotten to my hotel through traffic that was even more gnarled and tortured than the Roman norm, the rain was positively torrential.

I threw my bags into my room and ran through the streets to the Pantheon where for 20 glorious minutes I got to watch the water pour down through the oculus.  Then, almost as suddenly as it had started, the rain stopped and it didn't rain again while I was in Rome.
