ducklings, ties, and local pride
posted by soe 1:03 am

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. I had a work meeting down on the Mall this week. We ended up by Constitution Garden, where there was a mama duck and four ducklings paddling about.


2. Despite their saying only the top three volleyball teams would advance to the playoffs, my league let all four of us in, thanks to two of us being tied. We’ll take it!

3. I don’t like hockey. I do, however, like people who like hockey. And I like seeing our locals get to proud of something on the national stage. And, being a fan of a different sport, I know the dejection of losing and the elation of winning in big games. Thousands and thousands of hockey fans have packed local bars, parks, and streets for watch parties this week and tonight they got to watch their Capitals clinch the Stanley Cup, and I couldn’t be happier for them.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?
