Saw Yelle tonight and she was *amazing*

Yes, I keep every card. This was #2. Very excited to be seeing the show tonight and escaping into the McKittrick...
... because Germany's been cancelled. That's partly a disappointment and largely a relief. I could use some time to be stationary and get my head together.

Saw the sun setting from the train, ran down to the river and managed to snap this.
My Germany trip, scheduled to start Saturday, is still completely up in the air. It's making me a nervous, unfocused wreck. But at least there's Sleep No More tomorrow night!

This Waco pamphlet was left at my door a couple weeks ago and I saved it knowing I wanted to take a picture of it at some point, it's a lovely use of color. Also this is appropriate given the Easter holiday.
I'd love to digress onto my feelings about religion, but I'm pretty certain my opinions are both offensive and unhelpful so it's not really worth doing. We'll just leave it at how much I marvel at the question on the flyer, "How can you benefit?" It'd be nice if all the schools of enchanting just advertised themselves as such.

This is a slice of the groom's cake, which was Lost-themed including the hatch, that chunk of leg there I believe belonged to Boone, whose bloody body was also prominently featured on the cake. At least two layers of the cake were made of cookie. Amazing.

Fleeing the setting sun, my flight from SFO to Kansas City took off at dusk. Oakland was a blur. Kansas City proved entertaining when I got to the airport and realized they don't really do "taxis" so I decided to walk to the hotel, in the rain, before realizing that at airports they don't tend to have sidewalks. Fortunately the shuttle bus passed by and kindly offered me a ride.

My own front door. It feels like I'm not here very much these days.
As I write this I'm editing Greece photos, unpacking, repacking, and stocking my iPad with goodies for the chain of airline insanity that starts tomorrow: EWR-PHX-OAK-SFO-MCI-CLE-PHL.
Still don't really have a plan for how to get from Philadelphia back home on Sunday but at least that's straightforward and on the ground. Oh yeah, then New Haven again on Monday.
Really looking forward to Tuesday when I get to swim again, and the weekend after that.

Ancient sites such as the Parthenon tend to be both overwhelming and underwhelming all at once – imagining their original use and condition is basically impossible, and so their grandeur seems almost entirely faded. And yet one can't help but marvel at the complexity and the execution that is still apparent.

Today is Matt's 30th birthday. My gift to him is that tomorrow we depart for an unknown destination, he'll find out where when we check in at the airport.
Accordingly: no posts until we return on Tuesday. Then immediately after that I'm off on a crazy, complicated trip to Oakland and back by way of Kansas City and Philadelphia. Whee!

Oh the magic of editing.
In the intervening month (has it really only been that long?) my interest in the show has grown into full-blown enchantment. We went back on April 1 as part of Matt's birthday celebration, and last night I bought a ticket for April 29. As soon as more May dates open (provided this occurs) there'll be another visit while Greg is back in town.
The masks evoke some degree of association with Eyes Wide Shut. I unsurprisingly take that the next step and wonder about synergies with Traumnovelle. All three of these are narratives that exploit my relationship to my own voyeurism, and I'm continually surprised and impressed by the power of that. More to come on the Schnitzler aspect, which if present, is entirely accidental to the SNM production, but potentially incisive.
Also more to come, probably alongside a photo about something completely different, about what makes Sleep No More so incredible.

Hard to choose a photo from today's wonderful shooting, so the "selection" proper is the one that tells a story; namely, that we happened across the annual pillowfight on Union Square today and watched as a huge crowd smacked each other with pillows, sending feathers and cotton strands everywhere.
Then we went over to the Highline for some nice springtime shots.
