Brunch for six at noon

Wake up and smell the espresso. It's 11:11 a.m. EDT, for heaven sakes! The Mother's Day menu:

Cultural outing to follow:

The Phillips Collection

Man Ray - Human Equations: A Journey from Mathematics to Shakespeare

Hiroshi Sugimoto - Conceptual Forms and Mathematical Models

Delightful paintings by children including a portrait of a pig

Highlights from the Permanent Collection 

Seeing well-behaved families honoring their mothers with a trip to the art museum gave me great joy. I especially loved the young family all in their dress-up Sunday School clothes, the mom with a purple orchid corsage pushing the baby in a stroller, the dad corralling the other kids to make her day special.

I tried to go to the Phillip Collection on Monday after everyone else had left but it was closed. Had a nice time sitting on a bench reading in the grassy Dupont Circle instead, which seems a lovely city park and well used.

Mother's Day brunch was spent at a little place called the Rumba Cafe. It was very quiet there but we enjoyed it. Apparently people do dance right down the aisle at night.

I've learned the hard way that many galleries are closed on Mondays. Must be the day artists clean their brushes.
