This library. I spent so many nights of my twenties in this library living off the words of authors, artists, and thinkers and the cheese and wine of @bastamariah's catering and @arehmet's company. I think there are a handful of us who know what that library sounds and feels like at 10pm or midnight (after a few shots of tequila). There were games of ping pong and tables filled with cakes from Maira Kalman's childhood. A reading room that came alive with the sounds of Nico Muhly's music and 200 people banging along on homemade instruments. But the best times were after everyone left and we stayed to clean up and shut the lights in the deep quiet surrounded by the ghosts of the people who have walked those halls. I wouldn't trade a single one of those moments for anything else in the world.

Strangers on a train. #avbsubwaystories

I JUST WANNA KNOW A FEW THINGS I ACTUALLY NEED TO KNOW. In related news, the three types of greek columns were Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian. For the love.

And my latest haul from the best little gem of a store, @cwpencilenterprise. ✏️

In love with these beauties from @persephonebooks. 🙌 #Endpapers

Pinched nerve in my back means I get to spend 24 hours mainly staring at the ceiling. Luckily, books can be read when you're supine. Beat that, television.


For you, @bethanywin. 😘

For those of us who marched for women in January, we have a responsibility to pursue this and find out what's going on. In the last 24 hours, 14 black girls were reported missing. Tom Brady's jersey disappeared and the media went crazy. I just learned about this on social media. We have a responsibility. #findourgirls #blacklivesmatter
