Then I thought of the characteristics of a picnic, and what makes picnics so much fun. Many things came to mind. Of course, good food in a basket. But also... sunshine. Family. Games. Ants. Grass. Breezes. Flowers.
And I happened to be in a place where there were some pretty flowers, perched upon some nice green freshly-cut grass. Here is one of the flowers that I spotted. It was indeed part of a lovely spot to have a picnic.
I did not get to any technical reading today. I was up to my slacker-ish ways.
