In 2011, after dirty politics made it such that Funk not only lost re-election, but was blacklisted from obtaining a job, our family was forced to move from our Kansas City home where we raised our children.
We landed in Washington, DC, and this was the view from our apartment.
The scenery helped ease the losses, and brought me such joy as I gazed out the window while writing.
Within two years, we had to find another home in DC, as the city government allowed a hideous building to be built on that historic garden and my view became a brick wall.
Such exits dirty politics everywhere.
BTW: The condos in that new building are constantly turning over.
Ugh. I abhor politics!
