The Hirshorn had some funky stuff, including an entire exhibit dedicated to absence. It involved a bunch of stuff they had in their collection that they could display at once to suggest how one thinks and feels about absence.

We did get a chance to celebrate the diversity of the US via food trucks:
As always, whenever visiting places like this, I marvel at the diversity of the crowds. Obviously, the tourists include folks from abroad, but it is a nice reminder that the US is a diverse place, that the people's house represents all of us. Even if there are white supremacists inside this building and the one just off the Mall.
I hope you had a great winterfest. I certainly did, as I got a heap of time with my daughter and my wife's family. I hope that 2019 is a very happy new year for you and yours.
