The Ancients stayed close to Nature, thought with her, and without extraordinary contrivances, they played with matter.

Today we're off to Philly. I've not been in ten years, which is ridiculous given its proximity to B'more. I lived there for two years many moons ago, in a frigid apartment with nothing but a bed and a fork, in Dickensian poverty.
I want to see Phineas Gage's skull at the Mutter Museum, and to re-visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Love that filthy Duchamp corner with the peep holes.
