A Busy Final Day


On our last day in the nation's capitol, we visited the National Museum of African Art, the Sackler Art Gallery, the Folger Shakespeare Library, the Library of Congress (I got my library card at the Library of Congress. I bet that you're all jealous) and the National Botanical Gardens. Busy day.  We leave for home early tomorrow morning.

Evensong and Darth Vader at the National Cathedral


We visited the National Cathedral today. I am somewhat ambivalent about the "National" Cathedral. I worry that any church that ties itself to the state is compromised. The Church (with a capital C) does not belong to any nation. I did, however, appreciate that the tour guides and service leaders affirmed to the folks visiting that "this is your cathedral."

We took the tour, visited the gift shop (where I bought a book of poems based on the gargoyles and grotesques of the cathedral (one of which is Darth Vader)). Then we stayed for the Evensong service by the choir.

Background Images for Everyone - 2017 - Week 13


It's a bit later than usual, but I hope that I can be forgiven as I am on vacation with my family. Here is this week's free background image. Use it wisely, share it freely.

And for those of you who like to know - this photograph was taken at the National Museum of American Indians - the coolest of the Smithsonian buildings.

Enshrined Forever


The Carter family (at least my small branch of it) is on vacation this week in Washington D.C. This morning we visited the Air and Space Museum. After lunch we went to the National Museum of the American Indian. (I was very impressed by the exhibit of photographs by Horace Poolaw: For a Love of His People

In the late afternoon we stopped by the Lincoln Memorial.
