“It’s not fear that gets in the way of showing up – it’s armor. It’s the behaviors we use to self-protect. We can be afraid and brave at the same time.” ~ Brené Brown

More photos from my December trip to DC. Union Station is gorgeous any time of year, but it’s classically festive at Christmastime.

The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.” ~ Ben Okri

I’m sure thankful there are direct fights to and from Washington DC, but lordy, how I wish they flew at reasonable hours. Going there meant getting up at 4 am, coming back called for 5 am. I’m not a morning person, but I’d get up every day at those hours to work with David Brunton and Nathan Yarasavage (below). They’re two of the smartest men I know and equally sweet. It doesn’t hurt that they’re completely adorable, too.

If you read yesterday’s post, you remember I said that I walked back to my hotel after dark. Below is some of what I found along the way. No matter what you might think of the politicians in DC, there’s one thing we can surely agree on: DC’s architecture is amazing, and the photographic possibilities endless. Okay, that’s actually two things. In any case, what a beautiful end to a beautiful week.
