The Breakers Ceiling

Houses turned into museums is not a new or unheard of concept. These rarified buildings aren’t usually located within a stone’s throw of each other, however, unless the tourist happened to visit Newport, Rhode Island and drove through Ochre Point Avenue where at least half a dozen mansions are open to the public, including The Breakers. I walked through clench-jawed so my chin didn’t drag on the floor. I couldn’t even imagine living in such…excess. I did, however, imagine cleaning it. Oi.
