No more woe

I was just looking over what's come out of me this week on this blog and it seems that all this economic weal and woe is getting the best of me. Well, I'm done wringing my hands for the time being. Here's a bathroom I came across a couple of months ago and put in my clip file.

I have no idea where I found it, but there's something about this room that really speaks to me. Part of it is that it reminds me of some of the places I lived when I was young and hungry. On the whole, they were some pretty good times. Part of it too is that it's pretty obviously a bathroom in a Manhattan apartment, and I love New York with a passion that borders on the unhealthy. But probably more than anything, this bathroom tells a story of the person who lives here and at the same time it tells the story of the building it's in. I love peering into an unoccupied space and figuring out a bit about who lives in it. And at this point, I'll take whatever distraction I can find. So in keeping with this idea of distracting myself from woe's many forms, I hereby declare this week to be No Bad News week. Let's start a movement.
