As simple as the singular Christmas wreath adornment of the Carthay Circle Restaurant appears, I find it strikes those notes of refinement and elegance that so saturate DCA's "castle". The tower does such a noble job of hoisting that wreath high above Buena Vista Street for all to see. It causes me to stop and reflect on my own efforts. If something so simple can be so effective, why do I feel the need to surpass simple? Ah well, sounds like a resolution is trying to creep in before the new year!
