🌺 Life in the Oasis 🌴

The Mayflower Hotel as Art

1 Comment

Some of my business trips took me to Washington, DC.  On one such occasion, I was staying at the Mayflower Hotel, and one evening, I was wandering and found this curious nook.  I like the bannister, chandelier, and that little interesting pass-through.

The Mayflower is historic because it hosted an inaugural ball for President Calvin Coolidge and every inaugural since, but ended them in 1981.  Other Presidents and Presidents-elect, including Senators, stayed here, too, running their campaigns.  The hotel is connected to political scandals, too.

This week, I’m on a personal retreat to concentrate on a little bit of my writing and Holy Week. I’ve scheduled some photographs I took that I think you will finding interesting and maybe spark some discussion.

I will be checking back here every evening, so I’m not totally off the grid. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my blogs this week, and that you have a fabulous week, too!

Hi, and welcome to my blog. I am a published writer, poet, photographer, freelance editor, artist, and career analyst. Growing up in a bilingual family helped me foster my love of languages. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and Master of Arts in History. My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications. I enjoy Pre-Code films, photography, music, travelling, history, reading, and living each day to the fullest in The Oasis. My publications include Engaged (an anthology of my poems), The Crowd of Turin, God of the Sea: A Short Book of Poetry by the Seashore, Grapes Suzette and Other Poetic Epicurean Delights, Gallery Night, Indigo Fantasy, The Green Gloves, Puppy Love, Supreme Theater, and others. I am currently working on an anthology of my short stories, including a roman à clef tale, and am in collaboration with another artist in writing a novel. My books are available through Amazon. Check them out. Buy them. Read them. Send me your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.
