Pierre-Auguste Renoir , La Lecon, 1906

Daily Thoughts 12/1/2011

I read some more of Survival of the Beautiful this morning.  The author is writing about camouflage in nature. There is some interesting material on military camouflage and patterns that are disruptive to the eye called dazzle patterns.

I updated the Facebook and Twitter accounts this morning and spent some time discussing the programming which is listed on the website with a colleague.  I also checked the displays to make sure they were in order. 

The book Free Ride How Digital Parasites are Destroying the Culture Business, and How the Culture Business Can Fight Back by Robert Levine has come in for me to read.

I have decided to stop reading And So It Goes Kurt Vonnegut: A Life.  There is a review in the November 27, 2011 New York Times Book Review which describes it very well.  The book is heartbreaking and extremely bitter.  It is not something for my tastes.

Right now, I am working on a flyer for an event for Kenneth C. Davis.  Kenneth C. Davis, the author of Don't Know Much About History will be coming to the Mount Vernon Public Library on January 12, 2012 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to discuss his work.
