Blooms

It has been a fantastic couple of days here in the DC area. The sun is out, the snow is melting, the Terps destroyed Duke at home, and gay couples can legally marry in our nation's capital. One by one, the united states seem to be falling away to the inevitable, and hopefully (hopefully) the example set by our capital city will now be followed more willingly, and lovingly, the way it should be.

Joy, like the cherry blossoms in April, can open and blanket a whole city, transforming it entirely, if only for a small while. And that is how I feel right now.

After a long, hard, cold winter, spring is finally, finally, finally coming for our country.

The juxtaposition of this post and the most recent one by Lindeboom is a startling comment on life in America.

@Brit - it certainly looks like it! I was selected as a government fellowship finalist and will be flying down at the end of the month to do the whole interview thing. I am beyond excited. More details are at my LJ :)
