This photo was taken last year in D.C., when the cherry blossom festival was in full swing. Here, it’s supposed to get to 50 today. I can’t wait. [On edit: it was warm, it was sunny, it was delightful.]
I had a strange but vivid dream last night where Hermione Granger – the character from Harry Potter, not the actress who plays her – wanted me to write a blog post about her return to witchcraft after retirement. I had written it all up on my smart phone and everything. I’ve never actually read the Harry Potter books, by the way.
