In lieu

I'm exhausted, I have a head cold, and I'm not sure what time it is. This is what two transatlantic flights in four days looks like.

On the other hand, it also looks like this.

So I can't complain. My trip was fantastic. It was 80/27 degrees and delicious food was everywhere. I petted a Library Lion. We walked from Battery Park to Central Park, and not in a straight line. My feet have aged an extra thirty years. Is New York amazing? Fuhgeddaboudit.

I also managed to write a few words on the flight, which is unheard of in the history of me. I'd like to say it was Big Apple inspiration, but really my current project is just so loud it wouldn't shut up. That's fine with me.

More photos at flickr, including some in the Darth Does The World series.


  1. Always love a non-native's perspective, kinda like how another guy checking out your girl makes her seem her old attractive self again! ;-) Since you're a librarian, what do you think of the NYPL's plans for its most famous location?

    1. I hadn't heard about its plans. I didn't see anything while I was there. Care to elaborate?

    2. One of the biggest changes will be housing a lot of material off-site, meaning it's not necessarily a trip to the basement anymore! They also want to add a café or something...et cetera: read about it on the New York Times' website!

    3. That seems to be keeping in line with a lot of library services. It's an international experiment. We'll see how it goes!

    4. The funny thing is, most people won't care one way or the other, but for some reason the powers-that-be have decided that in order to stay "relevant" they must get fashionable and erect cafés. And because some people will pop in just for a bite, these powers-that-be will declare their experiment a resounding success since visitor levels have increased!
