Yesterday, as I took my farewell walking tour of this magnificent city, I saw a sign promising “The best views of Edinburgh.”
I didn’t climb the Scott Monument, so perhaps my views are not the best views of Edinburgh (even though in my view, they’re pretty great).
That last photo is another best view of somebody my son Aaron and I view as the best stand-up comic/improviser/PhD of Mathematics in Edinburgh — Dr. Tom Joyce. (Tom is best viewed in my previous posts here, here, here, and here).
Over the years that Aaron and I have gotten great views of Edinburgh, some of our best views have been thanks to Tom. Somehow, we always run into Tom and get to view his kind, comic, creative, and often surprising views. Yesterday, I got a different and surprising best view of Tom when we viewed each other’s medic alert bracelets and found out we both
- take Warfarin/Coumadin,
- were born with heart conditions,
- have cardiac pacemakers, and
- got our first pacemakers when we were young (age 10 for me, age 11 for Tom).
The best thing I can say about that is this: even when you think you’ve gotten the best views of somebody, there’s always more to view.
Soon I’ll be getting best views of the friendly skies on my flights home to Boston, so I’ll leave you with these best views of Edinburgh:
In your view, what are the best views of Edinburgh in today’s post?
All my best to those who helped me share the views in today’s post and to all my readers who — in my view — are THE BEST.
