Clouds and crowds

We walked seven miles across the city, around the Tidal basin, visiting the memorials to Jefferson, Roosevelt and King, and almost back, until the heat got us and we succumbed a cab. I have been to a number of capitols, but this is still my favorite. Chalk it up to pride of place for someone whose birth certificate reads Washington, D.C., though I wasn’t born here. But that’s another story that includes a blizzard, a difficult home birth and an ambulance ride to the nearest hospital for a mother in distress and her newborn child, who would grow up to play and begin his  life work here. It will forever be my favorite city.
