Pic of the Week: Cherry Blossom Edition

Sometimes, for a moment or two, life is just about the depth of the colors in the world around us. And, as a writing professor always used to remind me, “Don’t forget to look up.” Shawn Miller, the Library’s photographer, always seems to keep that adage in mind. Here, looking up, is the dome of your favorite national library, framed by the cherry blossoms that make this time of year in D.C. special.
