4/3/08: Jan’s Visit to NMWA

Mrs. Holladay wearing SWAN pin!!! Old Member Makes First Visit


     After a week of exciting Chicago events, Adi & I flew to Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.  Thursday, she relaxed with family and friends in the AM while I went to the National Museum of Women in the Arts.  Even tho I’d been a member from afar for years, this was my very first visit.  What a terrific collection!  Before leaving I stopped on the second floor to watch the “Welcome Video,” & what a treat.  There was NMWA founder Wilhelmina Cole Holladay wearing a swan pin!!!  At first I thought I was hallucinating, but no: look close & you can see it for yourself.

     Someday I hope to ask Mrs. Holladay why she was wearing that specific pin on that specific day.  I’m sure there’s a story, but for now the synergy was more than enough.  Clearly “higher powers” knew Mrs. Holladay was “a swan” long before I did 🙂
