Welcome back, everyone. I just returned from the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. I can’t tell you how amazed I was. The library is so big and the desing is fantastic. The decor of the ceilings is a blend of many cultures and artforms as are many of the walls. The symbolism behind the design is even more stunning, from Angels to Astrology and from History to Science. I hope to go back later this summer and spend a day there to take in some of the many thousands of books the library houses. One thing I realized is that the staff who take care of the Library do the most phenomenal job in mainaining it and makng it grow over time. Without their persistent hard work, it would never have gotten to where it is today. It also requires a special thanks to those who sponsor the Library and fund it. Some of the collections are priceless and not all the money came from the government.
I also want to offer a special thanks to Helen Hester-Ossa for putting together a fantastic program for the employees. This is a great experience for both those who attend and for artists and writers of all genre. It was breath-taking to be a prt of theLIbrary of Congress just for one day.
Next, on my agenda is The National Haunters Convention in King of Prussia this coming weekend. For all my friends and fans in the Philly area and beyond, this is a convention you don’t want to miss. Check out their website at www.nationalhauntersconvention.com . Other fantastic literary friends who will be participating in the convention are Stavros Cockrell, Leslie Bannatyne, and THomas M. Malafarina. They have a host of other activities going on that are phenomenal. I, myself, am actually loooking forward to the costume party on Saturday night. So come one, come all, to the National Haunters Convention on May 4-6. Thanks again for joining me. Please come back next week for an update and review of the upcoming convention.
