Wall art at 42nd Street train station, Bryant Park. Gutta cavat lapidem [non vi sed saepe cadendo]: "A water drop hollows a stone [not by force, but by falling often]" - Ovid.

I was on the way to NYPL to pick up a card. I am now set to view the Criterion collection. Wikipedia has the complete list. Stagecoach will be streamed shortly.

Love in Venice exhibit at NYPL was interesting. Included, as pictured above, are flap books showing the undergarments of Venetian prostitutes

Lots of art.

Just a beautiful setting.

Downloaded Donald Barthelme's short story The School from the Subway Library to read on the train. Amusing and insightful.

Robert Sapolsky on free will. Have to read his new one Behave soon.
