Today was the first day of my post-political career. I awoke surprisingly refreshed and eager to look at the world in a new way, and getting some exercise was at the top of my list. I started a brisk morning walk in Terra Losa Park, and just as "Joy" by Apollo 100 started playing through my iPhone headphones I spotted a child-sized soccer ball abandoned in the field. Well, what could I do but accelerate forward and punt the ball around the park for a while? Sometimes life really is like a movie.
