Today was the peak day for the Cherry Blossoms, and it was amazing. Our president flew overhead while we looked at them–another surreal moment. At one point I was able to turn to one side and see the White House, then to another to see the Lincoln Memorial. As the Washington Memorial came into view, I immediately looked for and found the Capitol and took a deep breath while I soaked in what was all around me. Monticello, the Pentagon, the Smithsonian, Monticello, and on and on it went. It was a good day. I wish Karen had been with me.
