While reviewing the last year's worth of photography, an email from an old friend arrived containing a New Yorker article about "#vanlife", and that got me thinking about The Society of the Spectacle and the state of the American dream.
Which pool would you rather swim in?
On a walk to the coop, I passed the Islamic school and was delighted to find the young ladies outside serving free cups of their homemade soup. Apparently they've been doing this every Wednesday all winter, and I've definitely missed out. The yellow split pea soup was spicy and delicious. Again, I love New York.
At the coop a member paged over the intercom, "Does anyone know if we have any instant espresso?" My checker replied she'd never heard of instant espresso. "Me either," I said, then thought of the "#vanlife" article. "But I sense an instant coffee revolution will soon be upon us."
