A Continent Away

I watched the Presidential inauguration today.  No matter who you support politically, the ceremony itself and the surrounding festivities appeal to something in each of us.  It shows our country making a peaceful transfer of power, or reaffirming our trust in those already in power.  It resonates with each of us in one way or another.

Today, as I watched from the other side of the continent, I was reminded how much I loved my trip to Washington last spring, what a wonderful time I had with my mother and sister.  I saw places we had been, things we had seen together, and I could not help thinking how much Mom would have loved watching and pointing to places she'd been.  She had a wonderful time on that trip, and I am grateful we had that week together.

I was also reminded what a lovely city Washington is, how much I enjoyed my last visit, and why I want to go back.  I want to take my husband and show him the things I shared with Mom and Jeri, the places we saw and the things we did.

Malice Domestic gives me another reason to return to DC, but this year the timing is not quite right.  If I get to go, it will be just for the weekend with no time for sightseeing or playing tourist.  No time for the wonderful restaurants I discovered, or the monuments I missed.  It would mean a cross-country round-trip on a four-day weekend-or three days if I can find an overnight flight that would get me into DC early enough on Friday.

So this year I won't get to visit DC with Steve, but I hope it won't be too long before we make the trip together.  I hope we can have enough time to explore the things we want to, but I have a hunch that is going to take several trips.

I'm willing to make that sacrifice!
