year-round farmers

I love that my farmers' market is open year-round. Sure, there's a few less vendors, but the ones that come every week still see a loyal customer base. I'm quite addicted to Asian pears from one orchard and the cider from Toigo. How many months until I can get a fresh tomato again?

sitting, waiting, wishing

On Christmas Eve, we took my parents to see the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in the District. While we wandered around, this pacing stranger nervously kept checking his cell phone for messages. It wasn't very warm out, and he was decked out for something important. After we'd walked to our car, we drove past him and his possible new fiancee walking past the Tidal Basin, both with impossibly large smiles. Mazel tov!

I call Heaven and Earth to witness this day: I have put before you life and death, blessing, and curse. Choose life--that you and your offspring shall live.
