There's something inherently pleasing about color and sound as it explodes over our heads. Invariably it elicits some reaction, usually akin to today's title. For me, the amazement at the skilled creators of such showpieces always humbles me. How do they do that? How did they even think to try it? Amazing. I guess some things simply exist to be enjoyed, so every year I do my part! Tonight, as the Boston Pops plays "The Stars and Stripes Forever", I will sit agape in front of the tube and revel in the fact that I have the freedom to do just that! And if you listen very carefully, at least one "ooh" will escape! Celebrate this birthday and know you are loved!
