My son. He’s one. Human life is beautiful. Innocence is beautiful. Wonder and discovery are beautiful. Seeing those things in your own has no comparison.

Ditto to Jamie, except and an (s) onto the end of “son”.

My two year old is amazing. His smile and laugh can turn your worst day into one you’ll never want to forget.

My three month old is a little angel (when he actually decides to sleep). I took him for a walk tonight, and felt so at peace looking at his little face as he slept.

The most beautiful things I’ve seen? … My eyes opening.

Trees after a stiff rain. So green and lush, their color is such an awesome combo with a dark blue sky.

Joe Ruby 28 Aug 06

The most beautiful thing I’ve seen lately? Hmm, yeah, in the past few minutes that’d have to be Bryan Peters’ wife with the two lesbian chicks. ;P

So, I’m taking this course to help study for the LSAT. One of the sections of the LSAT is a logic games section, and during a course today we encountered a logic games problem that was on its face very complicated, but in reality could be reduced to only one of three simple scenarios.

Seeing the deductions in front of me, translating arcane rules into a working model, and reducing a series of complicated restrictions and rules into a reality was amazing.

Watching the scenarios unfold in pencil on paper - that was beautiful.

+1 on Bryan Peters� wife with the two lesbian chicks.

as i don’t have children, and my wife goes without saying, i would have to say michael jordan’s title winning shot against utah for his sixth championship.

Bryan Peters 28 Aug 06

“What�s the most beautiful thing you�ve seen lately?”

That shot against Utah was 8 years ago. Have you seen anything beautiful since then?

A distant 3rd place to my wife and 20 month old son is my new MacPro and 30” Apple Display. Ohhh it is quite a step up from the ole’ iMac.

Standing at the centre of a traffic circle with a police cop, I saw two different areas across from each other separated by a bridge. The one on the left was the outskirts of where the really rich lived and the one on the right, the outskirts where the poor lived. Amazing to see such a contrast here in India, where the economy is growing.

Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder!

I just watched a DVD of The Dark Crystal, and the fantasy landscape of the river when the gelflings are floating along by singing is just stunningly beautiful.

See my almost four month old son smiling after a weekend off.

In the center of Newcastle, England (next to the railway station), there is a huge building that’s in the process of being demolished. It’s currently wrapped in plastic like a birthday present. The other day I stood underneath it, and watched the entire enormity of it gently ripple in the wind. It was like the sea, but at 90 degrees to what you would expect. Beautiful.

Strippers. I find beauty in beautiful women taking their clothes off. It’s like poetry in motion.

I take express buses on Lake Shore Drive everyday and make a point to check out the lake. Last night after a day of rain, it was Atlantic Ocean rough. Tomorrow it might be crystal blue.

But the best was last Friday morning. Very cloudy morning and there was a break in the clouds. The sun peeked through and illuminated a thin line on the horizon on the lake. It was like a wink to me from the universe. I felt like nobody else on the bus saw it before the clouds closed up and the sun went into hiding.

My entire direct family helping my mother move her sign shop to another location. All my grandparents, my parents, my sister and I. Filing, setting up computers - even my downs syndrome aunt putting up rolls of vinyl. And I didn’t even realize it until I got home that night.

Lately, sunrise at Prospect Park, Brooklyn.

Dinner I cooked last night. I call it “Lost on the way to Milan” … pork medallions milano-style (sorta) on spaghetti tossed in an amazing, deep red heirloom tomato sauce. A little of the deep red sauce poured over the golden brown pork with a white sprinkle of parmesan topped by a bright green sprinkle of fresh chopped parsely. Gourgeous. Tasted good too.

Last night my neighbours had a barbeque which was fairly loud and more than a little bit on the drunken side. There was one bloke in particular who was more raucous and, well, crude, then would generally be counsidered couth.

This morning I glanced out the window to see Raucous Crude Guy sitting serenely in the sun reading a book. Boofheads reading books are beautiful.

The look in my daughter’s eyes when I got home from work today… 2nd place was Sunday evening - I was in a rush and went to the upstairs master bedroom to look for my cell phone … the room was dark and out of the windows I saw a gorgeous dark sunset with vibrant oranges through purples. The tall silhouetted eucalyptus trees that run along the horse trail next to the house framed the glowing sliver of a moon. I forgot about finding the cell phone. I considered getting my camera but decided some things are best remembered rather than recorded.

The look in the eyes of a poor old women who is so unbelievable happy with a new bed.

sorry for the double comment. Opera didn’t refresh the page properly. (so I clicked the post this comment button twice.)

isn’t there something in “Defensive Design for the web” about that? :)
