I bought the bird feeder!! Karen, how long before birds start showing up? Me and Buddy and Finney can’t wait! I had to fashion this very crude way of attaching it to the fire escape, using a wire clothes hanger. I need to find a hook thing. Plus I’m afraid of heights and it really took a lot to lean out and put it up. I don’t know how I’m going to replenish it when needed.
While I was looking for a picture of the Isador Straus summer estate I came across this picture of the Wheelock Mansion on 661 West 158th Street. It’s dated November 10, 1937 and it was taken by Berenice Abbott. That’s Manhattan! It’s like a beautiful, Jean Cocteau-imagined fantasy but it’s (was) real.
Woke up feeling miserable, don’t know why, but I’m doing what I can to alleviate it. I bought myself lilacs, went to my local library branch to find out if my access card can be used to take out books because I thought the idea of all the money I could save not buying books might make me feel better, (it can and it did a little) had a burrito for lunch and strawberries for dessert.
What else can I do??
Finney just curled up in my lap. That should help.
I have my monthly meditation meeting tonight, except I really want to curl up in a ball and watch tv instead. That’s probably not the right choice though.
We’re so vulnerable as a species. Some of us are anyway.
Okay, I’m going to go figure out how I order my library books online so they’re there waiting for me at my local branch.
Except it’s on my other blog. But I worked like a dog on this posting, telling this story! Hopefully it’s worth going there to read.
Here’s a picture of some workers, down at the World Trade Center site, taking a break, which I will now do as well. All this blogging! So exhausting!
I took an iphoto class yesterday so today I’m going to take a bunch of pictures and experiment with making them better.
Oh, and I’m going to post a ghost story I researched on my Unbelievable blog. But I want to go out and shoot a movie of the spots I’m talking about first. They’re all close by so I can do it quickly.
Blows my mind. I was saying this in the iphoto class yesterday. I am old enough where it just blows my mind how quickly technology is progressing. That I can post a story, which I researched mostly online by the way, and shoot a movie to go with that and upload it in seconds, I mean the world just go so much more fun.
Someday there will be little cultural differences. Everywhere all over the world we’ll be so much the same. I don’t say this in a “we are the world sense” but connection changes you.
I wonder what if there will be any physiological changes as a result of constant all encompassing access?
