Saturday in Washington, DC

I am in Washington, DC for the National Association of Community Health Center’s annual Policy and Issues Forum. Yesterday, I was on a panel and spoke about social media and health care. I’m told it was well received, and had some great discussions afterwards. Later, we had a nice dinner.

I did not sleep all that well, which is often the case when I travel. This morning, I got up and walked over to Dupont Circle and watched a little bit of the Washington marathon. On my way, I passed various embassies and think tanks, like the Brookings Institute and the Carnegie Institute.

Back at the hotel, I watched as a dog walker stopped to take pictures of a cherry trees.

LOVELIEST of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.

My old computer continues to be a bit flaky and has been crashing on me from time to time, so this is my second attempt to write this blog post. I am writing now, between sessions at the conference. Later, I will perhaps walk around DC a little more, before unwinding at the end of the day.
