shared meals, fleeting, and or maybe not
posted by soe 9:25 am

Three beautiful things from the past week:

1. My brother was in town for a day-and-a-half this week. He had lots to do, but we still managed to squeeze in lunch for just the two of us and dinner with him and his college friends/hosts on Tuesday.

2. Tuesday morning, the flowers I bought at the farmers’ market were in full bloom and utterly perfect. In my blue vase, I had placed a single pink peony and a stem of blue baptisia as well as a couple of stems of baptisia leaves. I forgot to take a photo, but I won’t forget its beauty.

3. On Monday when I arrived in the bowels of the Dupont Circle Metro station all alone on the opposite platform sat a dolly with a load of billboards. The billboard that was up was one for an art exhibition. The one showing on the dolly read, “I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.” Then a man came by, did up the strap on the dolly, and rode away with the billboards on the next train.
