Grand entrance to the Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel.


About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    It’s a venerable old hotel.

  2. Love the details in the entrance. I didn’t realize this used to be an apartment – interesting.

    *sigh* I wonder where all the artists went. I doubt there are many who have the skills to do this kind of stone carving!

      True. Such marvelous work. I am sure people will do work like this now, digitally and mechanically with the help of computing skills, but the hand made designs in concrete and cement are a thing of the past.
