We have sun today, only patches of cloud – and wind – but it's colder than yesterday. Currently, it's 41˚F, but feels like 30˚F. I did manage to leave the house yesterday. We made it to the Athenaeum, and then Eastside Market, and then Whole Foods. We left the House at 2:20 p.m. and returned right about 6 p.m. So, I was Outside for three hours and forty minutes, by far the longest I've been out since we returned home on the 28th of December.

Thanks to a headache that's still with me, I only made it halfway through Black Helicopters.

Here are photos from yesterday, behind the cut (no ebooks allowed):

I missed seeing pictures of the Athenaeum, so thank you for sharing them. The weather does look dreary there.

I wish there was a library like that in San Diego.

"...but first you must learn how to smile as you kill."

I just quoted that a few days ago in a discussion about corporate greed. But that song does articulate the situation in a pretty broad spectrum of hierarchical human societies.

Nice photos.

Especially in the presence of a Card Catalog! The Athenaeum sounds like a peaceful haven under any weather (with an honorable mention to Paper Nautilus Books).

Interesting company on the shelf there with you. That Jan Karon book, though, that's too weird - being the antithesis of anything artistic or adventurous.

I love the look of that library. I'd want to settle in & not leave for hours.

Love the photos of the Athenaeum, thank you for those. The shelf ladders are particularly nice. I also like that the image of your books also contains the new Gibson, which I literally finished reading last night.
Glad to hear you are heading back to the Catskills soon.

It remains a very beautiful library. Nice of them to have your Subterranean books as well.
