Above, a postcard (and the text of its caption) that I received in the mail this week from my daughter and her husband, who are traveling on the East Coast, and wrote, "One surprising delight in DC was visiting the Lincoln Memorial at dusk the lighting was magnificent. And there was a charming wee bookshop where we bought you this card."
