Dancing in the D.C. streets
I was born in the District, but for many years I lived in Europe, and upon moving back to Washington I noticed how much more cosmopolitan the city had become. One thing that really strikes me is how much music I hear almost everywhere I go — Metro stations, bus stops or anywhere there is open space. And the musicians are good. It feels so wonderful to walk the city and listen and watch the crowds take a few minutes out of their day to do the same.
Recently a string quartet was playing across from the building in which I live. The quartet began to attract pedestrians and suddenly, swept by the power of the music, people started dancing. All types of people, young, old — it didn’t matter. What mattered was the warm feeling of togetherness rarely seen among strangers.
This scene lit up my day, and I hope to see more dancing in the streets of D.C.
