Embassy Row

Over Mother’s Day weekend, the European embassies  opened their doors for a cultural festival.  Well, since I don’t much care for lines, Mom and Dad decided a nice walk along Massachusetts Ave. would have to do. Here we are stopping for a rest at the Khalil Gibran memorial.  Some of his poetry:

I have learnt silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strange, I am ungrateful to these teachers.
– Kahlil Gibran

Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
– Kahlil Gibran
