Paradise: The weather this weekend in Nashville is better than any tourism bureau could ever hope: absolutely perfect and so unlike August. Dry, sunny, a high temperature around 80. And since all the other residents of my household have traveled to Maine to visit family and to escape the absolutely perfect weather in Nashville, I’ve been able to devote my day to jogging and biking and spending a long time newspaper reading on the patio of a fine local eatery. And now I’m sitting on the shady wi-fi’d back terrace of my home thinking it doesn’t get much better than this how much better it would be if my family were here and I was running errands and doing chores. Oh well.
