    I was at that shining marble beacon the John Fitzgerald Kennedy Library on that little land spit
    below Boston 19 years ago with others of our Ghana One group following a reunion
    in Gloucester north of Boston and who’d remained friends since 1961.

    Remembering now the JFK Library also houses the Ernest Hemingway collection on one floor
    that includes a reconstruction Hemingway’s house office in Cuba with with the paintings and papers
    that Castro allowed to go there.
