Of Roosters, Queens, & Modest Triumph
Lovely piece of writing. From a craft perspective, I dig your setting and sensory details. I felt like I was there with you. I also enjoyed the story arc, moving from the architecture to the history of the place. The temporal journey coupled with the physical one is a fun method for interacting with a place. It makes me think of my 2007 trip to Paris and also of living in Manhattan, all that history and gorgeous architecture (of course barely any history at all compared to Europe). Anyway. Fun read!

Beautiful writing, and I liked how you pondered on the larger questions prompted by the historic surroundings.
Thanks Monica 🥃that’s definitely the most valuable aspect of history for me, being able to reframe our relationship to the contemporary
Enjoyed both the reflections on the history of the place and on the significance of the current passing of an historic figure. Truly the end of an era. Whomever is your photographer is doing a fabulous job!
