Today is the day we get our beloved baseball back. Thank God for the slow movement of time which has brought us through the chill of winter to this glorious day of days: The day our Nationals retake the field and start all over again, hopefully to reach the playoffs again
Today is the day we declare our excitement for things. Spring is here and coats are disappearing. Soon cute girls will bare their legs and feet as they flip-flop down these DC streets. Swimming pools will open and my son will discover the enormous joy of swimming on a hot summer day. Grills will cook burgers and fill the neighborhood with delicious smoke.
Today is the day.
