One of the simple pleasures I look forward to most come Saturday morning is listening to Scott Simon on NPR on my drive to the studio. His voice, eloquence and humor always make me smile as do the stories, like these two I heard this morning.

Lincoln's 272 Words, A Model Of Brevity For Modern Times

"Lincoln's words remind us at once of the brevity of life and the imperishability of humanity. The clock ticks, the calendar flips. No power exists to slow them down or manufacture more hours and years. Abe Lincoln reminds us to make our own lives count by filling the hours we have with what's worthy, kind, funny and honorable."

And this beauty. What a way to welcome the weekend.
