Over the weekend I have not had a moment to offer an update. I have been out and about in Connecticut and New York City packing my days with activities. Now I’m in Bermuda and things have slowed down to the point that I can take a little time to report. I have marked statements not meant to be taken as literal fact with “*”.
A visit to NYC is not complete without a stop in Ridgefield Connecticut to visit my old college roommate, Greg. COVER ART: A somewhat menacing woven tapestry of swans in the Aldrige Museum of Modern Art in Ridgefield.
Carl Jung’s “The Red Book” gives readers a friendly introduction to the realms of madness of which men do not speak*.
New York City
In NYC we visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Next week: Bermuda!
Note on the jokes:
The apparently flat federal prison in Chicago was not actually designed to satisfy a benefactor’s belief in depriving inmates of the third dimension.
A little while back Nydia and I went to Bristol Caverns in Tennessee. Here are some pictures from it.
This entry is late. I won’t hide it. I own it. However, I told myself if I got it in today I could say I didn’t miss it, which is important when you like to say “I’ve never missed an entry in ten years.”
Last weekend, Nydia and I drove west. We went all the way to Tennessee, but it didn’t stop there. We ended up pretty far north, and crossed the border into Virginia…
…Or we thought we did. That’s a Tennessee state flag right after the “welcome to Virginia” sign.
The kitsch was almost entirely Virginia.
I exited the kitsch shop and saw that on my side of the street, the flags were Virginia flags. The Tennessee flags were on the other side of the street.
As it turns out, this town is in both Tennessee and Virginia. It’s a border town, and the main street runs right on the border.
I really wanted to find a kitsch shop on the Tennessee side that sold almost all Tennessee kitsch, but people just stared at me blankly when I said the word “kitsch,” and Nydia was getting very cold, so I had to give up.
I went to Austin, Texas a while back and wandered around. This is from a series of Facebook posts I made while getting lost in the woods.
