David E. Pearce 9/11/2008 6:02:29 AM

Thanks to all for the encouraging comments!

The title was intended to contrast the relaxing feeling of such scenery on a perfectly beautiful day versus the daily pressure and hubbub many of us often experience, especially those working in a crowded urban setting.

It's what I felt that morning as I was able to sneak one day away from international business travel... #6440855
