I’m sorry if this photo looks like something Thomas Kinkade would do. It’s noisy here, but the scene was amazing and clear and took my breath away in person. This is what the park looked like this morning at 5:45, with the lamps peeking through the trees and the shine bouncing off the snow. I thought about writing up the obvious metaphors about today’s inauguration, but I won’t. I will say that I might be getting a bit more accustomed to the winter. That, ladies and gentlemen, is an historic moment. Times are a-changing.
