& all everyone’s been talking about all day was the impending blizzard the meteorologists promised will shut down the city tomorrow. hm. i’m not sure if i believe we’ll get as much as they say we will, but if we did, i wouldn’t mind so much.
tonight i rediscovered my love of collecting strange & interesting postcards. well, one thing lead to another & yes, i did it: i went back to ebay. i’ve got some coming soon from a wonderful store, The San Francisciana. not only are the postcards beautiful, but the typography on the back is wonderful. i dig old styles of playing with type. The group photo of the Gold Miners below is circa 1890’s, reproduced sometime in the thirties.
And your long time curse hurts but what’s worse — Bob Dylan, Just Like A Woman
is this pain in here; I can’t stay in here
ain’t it clear that i just can’t fit
yes i believe it’s time for us to quit
When we meet again, introduced as friends,
Please don’t let on that you knew me when
I was hungry, and it was your world
