There aren't many things about my daily commute that make me happy. It's pretty much limited to—if I get to work in less than an hour, it's a good day. But last week, as I sat in traffic near the Kearny Postal Sorting Center, I noticed that there were giant sunflowers growing on the side of the road. This isn't quite the area of New Jersey where it's marshy and people wonder how many bodies may be hidden out there, but it's industrial and definitely not pretty. So the ten or so sunflowers scattered over a half mile on the side of the road were a pleasant little surprise. And that made me happy.
