It was a glorious day on the Mall - yes, that Mall. Sunny and warm; sweater weather in the morning, not so much by noon. Blue skies and a happy crowd.
We were here.
The speaker of honor was there.
Words of remembrance, words of inspiration, words of challenge.
My knees tell me that the D.C. City Engineer has found a way to move the Mall an extra mile from K Street, altho the maps don't support that conclusion. Perhaps too many years have passed since we last joined a throng there?
Too many people around to actually visit the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, but a good excuse to make another trip in the spring. Amtrak is always waiting....
What could be nicer than watching the seasons come and go in the garden. I hope to retire in about three years and spend more time just digging in the dirt. I'm not a professional gardener, but enjoy putting my hands in the dirt and seeing what happens.
For now, let's enjoy it together!
