The Yin and Yang of a Perfect Weekend
The skyline of the Smithsonian. See the tip of the Washington Monument on the right side? It's some distance away, but so big it looms even over the Smithsonian castle.
It's turning out to be a perfect weekend. Yesterday, my day off, was sparkling, clear, sunny and not too cold. A friend and I engaged in all things Smithsonian. We had lunch at the American Indian Museum cafeteria: YUM. Then we walked down to the Sackler to see the Falnama, Book of Omens exhibit which is, by the way, exquisite. We visited the gift shop, too, and giggled at the "ancient Japanese bobble heads" for sale. Then we walked around the national mall, people watching. A fabulous afternoon.
Today is gloomy and rainy, but hey, I'm working all day. There is no better backdrop than rain for both the bodywork practitioner and receiver.
Life is good. Who needs a fictional character as a representation? I'm going to stop worrying about it. Well. At least for today! Happy Sunday, y'all.
Nuns with backpacks on the national mall. We saw a lot of monks, too.
