September 24

For the first time since this project began I actually have taken advantage of the 24 hour rule. I didn't leave the Met till 7:15 last night and chose, instead of rushing home and posting, that a nice quiet evening could be had.

I met the well dressed Hossannah Asuncion on the steps near a food cart named Cake&Shake.

We wandered around European Sculpture Court, paintings, the Kahn special exhibit, ending with Big Bambu. Hossannah was interviewing people, which was one of the reasons we traveled so much. It was such a great idea, she brought a recorder and asked questions about art, and connection to it.

Edited to Remove Poem: A revised version of this poem has since been published elsewhere. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Day of the Week: Friday
Occupancy of the Museum: Packed
Arrived at: 4:40
Departed at: 7:10
Read on Commute:  I finished The Structure of Magic (which was an excellent examining of language and therapy) by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, and A Week at the Airport by Alain De Botton (very disappointing). I just started Cider House Rules by John Irving (a favorite author of mine), it is pretty good so far.
