An utterly perfect day

The day is clear and crisp, like an autumnal day, full of promise and energy.
The sky is full of clouds that are worthy of a fresco.
The light is diffuse, bright, soft, forgiving.
The weather, location, pressure, local cuisine --- it is all in wonderful synergy today. I feel ready to have my portrait painted, or to head an army and invade a neighboring country. I could levy a new tax, or break with the Pope. But probably this is a surfeit of reading historical novels.

This post's theme word is mondegreen, "a word or phrase resulting from mishearing a word or phrase, especially in song lyrics." Today is a perfect day to dance through the streets and belt pop mondegreens, leaving a wake of bemused locals.
