quarante-deux: Lessons Learned

A lesson from each class, so far.

Environmental Literature: Gabriel Garcia Marquez', A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings. A short story of magical realism so worth reading. The epitome of how easily human greed can turn curiosity into spectacle, and then trample all over it.

French: Nous sommes des animaux sauvages. :)

Open Space Design: New York City's High Line. A raised railway built in the 1930's that, after undergoing threat of demolition in the 1980's, was retrofitted into a breathtaking park in the air. What a beautiful idea. There is hope afterall.
