Totul a inceput  Sambata . Mi-am  usurat traista de moasa comunala ce-mi purta si garderoba  ambulanta de : manusi , caciula, fular, sal si iar manusi – caci niciodata nu stii cu ce  trebuie sa  te asortezi in functie de  temperatura oscilanta a lui March madness si  April shower- May flowers . Semnele  continuau sa  se arate varatece iar Dumineca m-a cuprins febra  gradinarului, sa-mi fac o manecura cu pamant,  de  fapt sa-mi ordonez -aranjez deck ul , sa ne putem  bucura de veveritele obraznice   ce ne arunca cojile  nucilor in cafea .

Atata a ramas din fiica  risipitoare mioritica – mana  raneste floarea purtatoare , caci gradinaritul este o activitate dificila pe  care unii o privesc de sus , cand nu poti sa-ti  cobori privirea  la * a fi samanta si a te sprijini pe propriul tau pamant *- sufletul meu a ales la urma un ghid : * Thoughtful gardening *  [ Robin Lane Fox]  care ma indruma cum sa-mi murdaresc  mainile cu bucurie si placere ….

Luni , m-am  alaturat oamenilor turisti, care se bucura de  Cherry Blossoms  din jurul lui  Tidal Basin si care  sunt la  fel de spectaculari ca  acesti nori de petale roz -alb .

Nunta   ciresilor  anul acesta a tinut  fix  cinci zile  cu nebunia lor  cu tot. Caldura neobisnuita de june i-a explodat rapid, asa ca  am fost parte  la parada de  ciclisti , scutere , segawy  (  nu stiu cum sa le zic – )http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=1jpmJgi-6iw#!  si   faimosii  Rollerbladers cu antenele atasate  la helmet- sa  nu auda nimic  din ce-i in  jurul lor . Cei mai multi , daca nu toti ,se grabesc sa ajunga la un  spot unde sa le iasa poza  perfecta cu  un view spectacular ca si  transportul lor . Putini pedestrieni stiu  ca  exista un shuttle la Hains Points care in  schimbul unui  buck primesti un * pink ticket* ce  te duce la  punctul culminant, Jefferson Memorial , comod si destins , facand  o bucla in  jurul lui East Potomac Park  cu multe opriri .http://dc.about.com/od/restaurant1/a/EastPotomacPk.htm

Marti , pe  strada 19 , m-a imbratisat culoarea roz a drumului spre servici . Traista de moasa  comunala imi strivea umarul , cel cu bretelute si dantelute, dar nu mai era timp de vaicarit, asa ca  am trecut  durerea la  gat . Adica   mi-am  atarnat  *the  big cam*de  gat . Bucuria de *chick who click* a invins.

Miercuri, caldura  ne-a  aruncat pe toti in  flip-flops syndrome, hats, shorts , bluzite de vara si  hai la locul nestiut decat de localnici , Kenwood, and hurry up , caci joi  revenim la April . Aici fauna era  domestica : copii mici , copii mari , seniori si  juniori , picnic matinal cu brunch la iarba verde, trubaduri de ziua ,catei mari , catei mici si eu desculta in park  cu o cafea rece. ( da, Valentina , cu gheata 🙂

Joi, pana  mai apoi , adica  fix in zori de ziua, trasnete si fulgere m-au trezit cu noaptea-n cap si o temperatura ce  ne-a bagat rapid in sneakers si bluejeans . Gata  vara , inapoi la sezonul normal si ce-a  ramas  dupa nunta florilor efemere.  Vin  lalelele cu olandejii lor zburatori si liliacul vesel…. a lui Strauss,  fiul or tatal, n-are importanta , eu cred ca al bunicii 🙂  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5LzH8uABMg

by mother nature at Tidal Basin  and streets of Wash.dc –cherry blossom :

*To catch the breezy air; And I must think, do all I can, That there was pleasure there .


If this belief from heaven be sent, If such be Nature’s  holy plan ,

Have I not reason to lament What man has made of man ? *( WW)

…. our breath comes out white clouds mingles and hangs in the air

you burst on the scene already a legend

the unwasted miracle , the original beauty…

speaking strictly for me we both could have died them and there

La castelul Warwick Catredalei am dat peste strainul acela nastrusnic . Omul ma atrase prin trei lucruri:

printr-o simplitate candida, printr-o uimitoare familiaritate cu armurile stravechi si prin tovarasia-i odihnitoare – caci, intr-adevar, el duse tot greul conversatiei. Asa cum li se cam intampla celor modesti – ne nimerisem amandoi in coada multimii, care era condusa prin castel, si omul se apuca sa-mi povesteasca o seama de lucruri interesante. Pe cand imi vorbea asa de ademenitor, domol si curgator, parea ca aluneca pe

nesimtite din lumea si din vremurile noastre in vremuri indepartate si intr-o tara straveche si uitata. Treptat, imi urzi o asemenea vraja, incat mi se paru si mie ca umblu printre stafiile, umbrele, praful si mucegaiul unei antichitati incetosate, stand de vorba cu moastele acelor vremi. Imi vorbea de Sir Bedivere, de Sir Bors de Ganis, de Sir Launcelot al lacului, de Sir Galahad si de toate celelalte nume vestite ale mesei rotunde, intocmai cum as vorbi eu despre cei mai apropiati prieteni ai mei, ori despre niste vecini carora le stiu toate necazurile . Si, vai, ce infatisare de om batran capata, nemaipomenit de batran, stafidit, uscat si mucegait –pe masură ce-si depana firul povestilor. Pe neasteptate, se intoarse spre mine si ma intreba, asa cum cineva ti-ar vorbi despre ploaie si vreme bună :

-Tu ce faci aici ???

– Merlin , am  venit in lumea basmelor ! Pot sa  raman la masa rotunda?

– Vad ca-mi stii numele ! Esti la masa rotunda  !!

I’m afraid of plenty of things: the dark, public speaking, spiders, centipedes, millipedes, bipeds, mopeds, the light, getting trapped in an elevator, being buried alive by a UPS guy, getting trapped in an escalator, Funky Winkerbean, private speaking, not being able to think up enough absurdly random items for a list of fears, bees, you know, all the usual stuff. But just for good measure, to prepare my self for the fear, I been there , and I had a *good time* . Astonishingly, there were very few people in the trees : so much for the canard that liberals are mostly wild people raised by apes.

For real, in total there were only three questions that had facts for answers, which, in my opinion, is what makes a trivia question a trivia question. The  three questions were riddles, meaning there was no right or wrong answer, just a bunch of stupid ones. Half the fun of the rally is knowing: you can use your brain to get yourself out. The stupid jokes don’t allow that. With those, you just have to guess, like an idiot. So, I don’t know.  The sky was blue , just sooo blue , only here  autumn is indian summer  in  october 31th . It wasn’t really that good and it also wasn’t bad.  But democrats  dude  and  dudets  will take off gloves , fold’em neatly and put’em in nice little box on nov 2th   cy ! 😉

I do love DC  ‘cuz in DC there are rallies every damn day !

The controversial *Restoring Honor* rally on Saturday was bound to spark debate among media outlets. First order of contention: How many people were actually there?

The rally was held at Washington, D.C.’s Lincoln Memorial on the anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I have a dream” speech–an area capable of accommodating a huge number of people. Officially, Beck’s permit for the rally allowed for 300, 000 people. CBS has reported that 87, 000 people came out to hear the Fox talk show host speak, while the New York Times reported that event organizers had pegged the number at around 500, 000. As for FOX News, they’ve refrained from actually offering up a number, instead calling the turnout “huge.”

This isn’t the first time that rally attendance estimates have caused debate–though it’s note-worthy that if more than 250, 000 people attended, the crowd would have exceeded the one present for King’s speech.
