A wonderful hunt...

From Jim Harrison's 'Bird Hunting':


287 Broadway still standing

A few years back, while walking I noticed this beautiful building being propped up by massive steel supports - what a depressing sight. I walked by it again yesterday and now it can lean on the project that cause it to crack in the first place. After perusing the internet it looks like a lawsuit shitstorm from the former residents of 287 and investors. Good, I wish the developer and all of its international investors debt and poverty.




I received many geological treasures for my birthday this year and I thought I should share some photos. I'm not sure I deserve such beauty. I love all of them. In no particular order:

brass and turquoise made by Emily:

agate and petrified wood:

Agate bookends:
