Colors of San Francisco Bay, seen from the air. It's been a quiet Sunday, with a long phone call from my daughter. On Book TV, an enthusiastic historian talking about Benedict Arnold's navy and the Battle of Ticonderoga. He is showing slides and pointing out the errors in the history paintings. He's quite funny. A bearded bear-like guy. I often wonder if I could have been precise and disciplined enough to study and write about history. I don't think I am still deciding what to do when I grow up, but maybe so.
