Back in New York as of late last night. Managed to pirate wireless signal while in transit and spent part of the trip going over final text layout of Fires.
A large part of Saturday was spent in Washington, D.C., wandering with parents and brother. The Phillips Collection is one of the better art collections I have ever visited. (It caused my mother to say what she says whenever we go to a gallery: "Huh, this makes me want to go do art.") We saw some memorable Paul Klee pieces like
The Witch with the Comb:
Figure from the Oriental Stage:
Another piece that made me happy was Fugue by Nicolas de Staël, but it is useless to post an image, which can't convey the pleasing texture.
