Yesterday I was sitting by the pool with Paige Burger and I was feeling pretty good about my day. In the morning I’d taken the English class to an amazing museum dedicated to the Hohe Tauern high alpine national park that we live just below. In the afternoon, somehow, Paige and I ended up with responsibility for playing ultimate frisbee with five of the cool older kids. We taught the game quickly then played hard for an hour until everyone was gasping and drenched in sweat. Then we went next door to the pool.
As we were sitting at the pool, basking in the warm afternoon sun, watching storm clouds build off in the distance I was inspired to a high five with Paige. After our hands separated we saw a fly spiraling down. We’d high-fived a fly that was flying by.
