I listened to Coldplay‘s Viva La Vida album in its entirety as I rode my bike into DC to work today. The Viva La Vida anthem track came on as I was riding through Rosslyn and heading to the Key Bridge. Just like clockwork, the “woah oh oh!” refrain hit as I rode across the bridge. It was awesome! The spires of Georgetown University were straight ahead of me, the Kennedy Center and Washington Monument were off to the right, and the sun was reflecting off of the Potomac River.
It was one of those moments where you just have to thank God for being alive.
