Day 2099: Look around, look around

As I look around, look around, I hear these lyrics from Hamilton:

Look around, look around,

How lucky we are to be alive right now.

Look around, look around, how lucky we are to be alive right now when somebody’s posted a 30-minute loop of these Hamilton lyrics on YouTube:

 

Look around, look around at my photos from yesterday.

How lucky I am to be alive right now, even if I lose sight of that sometimes.

What do you see when you look around, look around? I will look around, look around for your comments later.

Look around, look around for my gratitude to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — to YOU, for looking around, looking around here.
