An artist who had certainly known the feeling of being on top died yesterday. RIP: Gabriel García Márquez
“In the parlor was a huge camera on wheels like the ones used in public parks, and the backdrop of a marine twilight, painted with homemade paints, and the walls papered with pictures of children at memorable moments: the first Communion, the bunny costume, the happy birthday. Year after year, during contemplative pauses on afternoons of chess, Dr. Urbino had seen the gradual covering over of the walls, and he had often thought with a shudder of sorrow that in the gallery of casual portraits lay the germ of the future of the city, governed and corrupted by those unknown children, where note even the ashes of his glory would remain.”

Drove to Boston this afternoon. Horrible traffic. Arrived at my parent’s house to discover their wireless is not working. They didn’t know this. I will try to get this fixed tomorrow but in the meantime I can’t upload any of the photographs I intended.
Luckily I did take a picture of the cause of the traffic.
You just don’t expect to see this in Greenpoint.
