morning ralph.

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.” 

“Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

–Ralph Waldo Emerson (on both counts)

Garrison Keillor does The Writer’s Almanac. Love what he opened with this morning.

 

atlanta dispatch.

Took a brief jump to Atlanta a couple of weeks ago for work and stayed in a hotel with a room that faced CNN’s world headquarters. Felt a little like a grown-up, kind of nerdy Disneyland. You can see the newsroom if you look closely in the first shot.

vintage new england.

Kittiwake Card Company makes some of the best postcards around, especially if nostalgic Boston imagery is your thing. The cards can get art-y at times, which I enjoy.

I’d be willing to bet money this is a Lewis Bay shot of JFK. Appreciate the lack of glamour and mystique in this one; there’s something nice about knowing that it’s universal to like a good soft serve every now and then. This shot reminds me of my dad.

And Warhol, for good measure.
