Pearl Street and Wall Street

It’s time to move on. 

This blog is moving over to Instagram. Where I will post snapshots and snippets of my “personal micro-culture” (to use William Gibson’s phrase), bits of reading and writing and crafting and traveling and city living—anything, really, that looks interesting.

Overheard on the street: “Do you mean yes as in yes or yes as in no?” 

Blog is going on a break. A reconstruction effort. Back in a couple of weeks. Maybe things will look different.

58th Street and Seventh Avenue

“And if the luxuries of the sun and the sea are absent, if life in this city seems brittle as glass, every kind of vehicle here performs every kind of motion to take the citizen away from the city, if he has the money!” —Delmore Schwartz, via Flavorwire
