Let's Go Fly a Kite!



Yesterday afternoon Dorian, Jessica, and I braved the crowds and drove around the annual Smithsonian kite festival. Although there were no bowler hats and flying women with umbrellas (thank you, Mary Poppins!), the magic of kites and crowds and wind and spring were exhilarating. The colors, the dancing fabric and paper, the spring in the air, the pink and white cherry blossoms, and the Washington Monument all made the crazy crowds and hour-long drive around the National Mall completely worth it. I can't think of a better way to spend an hour on a Saturday afternoon during the Cherry Blossom festival, even with my paper kindly waiting for me at home.
