When I finally have a dog, I'm going whistle that tune when I'm calling him in for dinner or play time.

Does anyone know what NVIDIA graphic drivers are? I didn't. But apparently when they stop working, your computer will crash in the middle of a beautiful, sunny day while you are uploading all your camera's food photos. Good times.

To all the dads out there, and to those who are not longer with us, Happy Father's Day! My dad was French, so when we moved here it took him a while to grasp the concept of having an entire day, aside from his birthday, dedicated to him.

the rose interior
Where is there an outside
for this inside? On what pain
is linen like this placed?
What skies find themselves reflected
in the inland lake
of these open roses,
these blissfully unworried ones:
see how neglectfully in all this looseness
they relax, as if no trembling hand
could ever spill them.
They scarcely can contain
themselves; many let themselves
fill up with inner space
until they overflow and stream
into the days, which keep on
closing more and more completely,
until all of summer becomes
a room, a room within a dream.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke, in New Poems, translated by E. Snow
