it’s official

You know it’s spring in Washington not when the cherry blossoms start to bud, not when tourists flock to the Mall, but when the Madison Lively Stones return to their spot at Dupont Circle. The Lively Stones is the trombone shout band associated with D.C.’s United House of Prayer for All People Church. (Visit this website if you’re interested in hearing what a shout band sounds like.)

We stumbled upon the impromptu performance during an evening walk.

I was restless, seeking something I could not name. Apparently it was the band because after 45 minutes of sitting under a full moon with a cup of hot tea watching a community united by their music, my soul felt lighter.
