A few good ones from Providence lately.
I was on my way to meet a pal for lunch on the side of town I never never see and got to take a great walk past beautiful towering mansions. Lots of trips to the library lately meant strolls across nice lawns and stately buildings on campus. At the library, I ventured into the basement and unearthed a few reels of microfilm--a research feat I'd never undertaken before. The microfilm was surprisingly easy, and was really fun to look at. I also had a late-night block printing session with my new magenta ink (I didn't have any blank paper so had to print my designs on the back of an old rough draft). Lately the office has been a little noisy (glass walls and all), so I decided to study at the Providence Athenaeum (a most enchanting little library). It's such a great space, and to top it off, dogs are allowed (apparently written into their ancient by-laws). Being in town for awhile also meant meeting friends downtown, where strings of round-bulbed lights line the streets.
