I bought a new ring last night at Import House. I tried to get a decent picture of it this morning but I kinda feel like I failed.
I also got a pair of hamsa earrings at Ohio Silver. I love hamsas to begin with, but something about these made me think of Frida Kahlo's favorite pair of hand earrings
Speaking of hamsas, can anyone tell me what this one means? My friend Tuvi gave it to me about a million years ago. I know the letters are "Tsmarcad," but I don't know what they mean. aaronbenedict was supposed to ask someone for me but, well, yea.
Antioch University -- Boo! Hiss!
The Photo House
We always used the back door
Peering in through the door
Library graffiti. I took lots of pictures of the graffiti on the basement study desks. It was like an archaeological find -- cave drawings of a sort.
Random large hole in the ceiling
Such perfect library graffiti
It was Scott Sanders who originally pointed these out to me. They marked one of the smoking/no smoking lines back when there were still smoking areas inside the library. People were still allowed to smoke in there as recently as my first year of college.
The ashtray is still there too.
I apologize that this one is so hard to read, because I thought it was hilarious. The top entry begins "Angst, Beavis, Angst! Argh!.." and the lower entry responds "Bummer for you! Can I have your tuition?"
"For a more useful and efficient library"
This was the seriously anti-Gerry Bello desk
Omnivore/herbivore argument desk
Have I mentioned how much I love Antioch graffiti?

People still know this song?
Hard to see, even in close up:
"Yay for mice"
It's stuff like this that reminds me of what a great place Antioch is to be when you're heartbroken. There's understanding and respect for the depth of emotion. It's like the whole place is here to comfort you. I know I'm not describing it right, but I feel it, and always have.

John or Jonathan's tree, I forget which
The spot where the memorial used to be. It succumbed to the elements about 5 years ago. if folks ever want to rebuild, or build something else on that spot, I can still direct everyone to where it was.
This is all that remains of the memorial
