Reading Girl in White and Yellow, Henri Matisse, 1919
Daily Thoughts 10/31/2017
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
Last night, I finished reading Soonish Ten Emerging Technologies That'll Improve and/or Ruin Everything by Kelly and Zach Weinersmith. There were a few technologies at the end which were not included like quantum computers, solar power satellites, and artificial limbs. This was fun to read. The illustrations had nice, light humor and I learned quite a bit about how a variety of new technologies worked.
I checked the displays and the gift books today.
I have a copy of the Ingram Advance and the Ingram Advance Technical, Reference, and Computer Books to go through.
I spent some time looking at holiday programs. I am hoping to do some holiday songs or holiday origami. I have been looking at Performers and Programs for New York. http://www.performersandprograms.com/index.html
On the way home, I read some of the graphic novel, Our Cats Are More Famous Than Us A Johnny Wander Collection by Ananth Hirsh and Yuko Ota. It is an autobiographical collection of comics. The people move between New York and Canada. They spend a lot of time drawing about cats, houseplants, and Japanese food. It has a cute, quirky feeling to it.
