This was one of the loveliest parts of my two weeks in Washington, reunion with beloved friends aside. We’d sit out to eat dinner at the picnic table, squeezed comically on the one side to avoid the sun hurting our eyes, admiring the wildflowers on the table arranged by Cici, munching on ice-cream or graham crackers or Lulu dhal. Slowly the sky would fade to blue and we’d turn to watch the mountains emerge in the distance. Back in the city, I’m still thinking about it.
