One Woman's Opinion

Order Mary Buxton’s books
imageLife and love in the rural tidewater area of Virginia is a common thread that runs through nearly all of Mary Wakefield Buxton's books. The push and pull of old and new, North and South, man and woman, life and death, are discovered, illuminated and reflected upon in each of them. Such is the heart and soul of a writer.


A Visit to Mt. Vernon
Summer is not the best time to visit Mt. Vernon, the home built in 1754 by our first president, George Washington, because of the extreme heat. Nonetheless, we were there on one of those hot days in early June that arrives like a band of trumpets so soon after the passing of May.


The Church of Dogs
imageA favorite British novelist, Graham Greene, once wrote about the “Church of Dogs” that he had come across in France during his travels. A fine idea! May I have some fun with you today along with a massive flight of imagination?


Reunion: EHS Class of ’57
My husband graduated from Episcopal High School in Alexandria in 1957 and I suppose it was feminism that caused me over the years to rag various headmasters of this fine prep school as to when they were going to accept girls. How irritating this must have been, but then Headmaster Hoxton would always politely grin and bear me…


Making payroll
imageMy list of special experiences everyone ought to partake of in life includes teaching a class in public school, waiting tables, going off to war and getting shot at, paying taxes, writing a controversial opinion in the local newspaper, driving a rescue squad vehicle, working a policeman’s shift, taking care of 4,000 patients (as my doctor does) and, lastly, making payroll.
