The location was at the entrance to a historic hotel near the White House in Washington DC.
The "Take It!" came from a look up from my reaching for the handrail while leaving this great hotel. It was early in the morning and the sun was in a position to provide a great
shadow from the assist I was afforded by this polished brass railing.
This is a hotel with a great staff and one of whom we lost to the pandemic. He was a doorman originally from Guatemala - and a fine fellow. Fortunately - I do not know many who have
died from this awful scourge - but each one will be missed. While I did not have his address - nor had met his family - we had exchanged information about our children and a bit about our
lives. I asked one of the staff to express my condolences to his widow.
Each day is a gift.
All my best,
