some reflections on a friday

Not every post has to be full of weighty thoughts. 

Isn't it a relief sometimes, when we give ourselves permission not to think them?

Today is a beautiful almost-spring day here in Washington, D.C.

The flowers are in bloom all over the place.

People are standing around outside.

Bicyclists are running everbody over, as usual.

The hot bar has baked tilapia, and spinach, and avocado salad by the pound.

On a day like today - "TGI Friday" - looking forward to the Sabbath, I appreciate all that is right with the world.

All opinions my own. Photo by me.
