Yesterday was a great mail day! Received this awesome @demyleeny for @jcrew scarf and my new ornament from @nypl. How cute is that ornament!? And I received that scarf just in time the weather flipped a little overnight.
Are you participating in the buddy read for #novemberroadinnovember I have going with @one_more_paige? If you haven’t read November Road and you would like to join in let me know! We would love to add you! The more the merrier.

3시간이 넘는 러닝타임 때문에 예매를 고민했는데
엄청 다양하고 많은 이야기와 사람들을 만날 수 있었다.
긴 러닝타임만큼이나 쏟아지는 다양한 정보들.
미술작품이나 책의 구절, 작가의 이야기,
역사 이야기라던지 뉴욕시의 정책,
시민들의 생각, 도서관의 다양한 문화 프로그램,
그리고 도서관 관계자들의 회의 등
배울점이 너무나도 많았다.
내가 생각하던 도서관의 의미에서 벗어나
진짜 도서관이 가지는 의미와
도서관이 수행해야할 역할과
그것에 동반되어야할 책임감 등을 보여준다.
내가 작은 마을 도서관 개관식을 진행할 때
어떤 군수가 그런 말을 했다.
그 지역의 도서관 갯수를 보면 그 지역의 수준을 알 수 있다고.
그런데 단순 도서관의 수가 아니라
그 지역의 도서관이 어떻게 운영되고 있는지를 통해
앞으로의 우리 사회가 결정 되는 것이 아닐까, 라는 생각이 들었다.
모두에게 평등하게 전해주고자하는 정보 취득의 기회와 문화 교육의 혜택.
그리고 도서관이 진행중인 다양한 사회공헌의 사례들.
뉴욕 라이브러리에선 그것을 위한
엄청난 노력과 고민을 하고 있었다.
3시간이 넘도록 줄곧 집중한 상태일 수는 없지만
긴 대사도 나름 빠른 호흡으로 지나가고
다양한 사람들의 등장으로 집중의 흐름을 조절해주고
설명하려하지 않고 보여주는 방식으로 많은 이슈를 야기했기에
꽤 집중해서 나름 재밌게 끝까지 볼 수 있었다.

N O V A Y O R K 🇺🇸 Finalmente conheci a Biblioteca Pública de NY, uma das melhores bibliotecas do mundo, aberta em 1911 num prédio lindo com arquitetura no estilo “beaux-arts”.
Além dos turistas como eu que estavam visitando e fotografando, os salões majestosos estavam cheios de pessoas do mundo inteiro em busca de conhecimento, seja nas coleções inigualáveis para pesquisas ou nos programas educativos e exposições.
Muitos salões são ricamente decorados com lustres elegantes, painéis e murais imponentes, nas paredes e tetos. Uma beleza!!! .

Last Saturday we were walking on Wallstreet with thousands of people in front and behind us, eating lots of food, walking lots of miles and soaking it all in. I’m currently meal planning while baby boo naps and hubs is doing some yard work on probably one of the last few (warm) sunny days of the year. #goodtobehome
Beautiful opening last night at the New York public library. Thank you Elizabeth and Joshua for curating this amazing shows Anna Atkins- blue prints and A.A. refracted. It is an honor for me to show my works among the other well picked artists. Well done!
You meet such lovely people at the library! These wonderful artists Penny Arcade and Chris Rael gave a great talk about the ‘80s ‘East Village’ at Tompkins Sq last night - Clayton Patterson there too but I forgot to ask him for a pic! Penny is a brave, fabulous trailblazer - I’m in awe of her💖 #NYPL#eastvillage#nyc
I am honored to be a part of the NAWA’s exhibit, ART OF THE STORY: EXPANDING THE NARRATIVE.

A Light Left On - May Sarton
In the evening we came back
Into our yellow room,
For a moment taken aback
To find the light left on,
Falling on silent flowers,
Table, book, empty chair
While we had gone elsewhere,
Had been away for hours.
When we came home together
We found the inside weather.
All of our love unended
The quiet light demanded,
And we gave, in a look
At yellow walls and open book.
The deepest world we share
And do not talk about
But have to have, was there,
And by that light found out.

One night Fortitude realizes that his chum Patience is missing from his post, where both of the marble lions spend their days outside the New York City Public Library. He mounts a search for him, wandering through the grand halls of the venerable library, looking long and hard in room after room for his friend. Night is waning and Patience is proving hard to locate. Fortitude has to think quickly to find his friend before sunrise. This beautiful tribute to the iconic New York landmark is a whimsical and incredibly heartwarming tale about friendship and books, and is definitely one to get lost in this weekend.
Lost in the Library: A Story of Patience & Fortitude was written by Josh Funk (@joshfunkbooks), illustrated by Stevie Lewis (@chocosweete) and published by Henry Holt and Co. Books for Young Readers (@macmillankidsbooks).
뉴욕에 가고 싶던 차에 이 포스터를 보고 너무 좋아서
영화보러 학교까지 갔다
알고보니 뉴욕 도서관(NYPL)에 대한 다큐멘터리 영화였다
그리고 무려 3시간 20분짜리..!
도서관에는 전혀 관심이 없었지만
그리고 다큐멘터리를 영화관에서 처음보지만
이 긴 시간이 루즈하지도 지루하지도 않고 끝까지 흥미로웠다
다양한 인사들의 강연, 공연들과
도서관의 직원들이, 이사회가 각기 다양한 주제로 회의하는 장면들이 이어진다
그 중에 신기하게도 회의하는 장면들이 특히나 인상적이었는데
노숙자들을 어떻게 도서관 안으로 받아들일 것인지
어떠한 교육 프로그램을 누구를 위해 얼마나 만들어 나갈 것인지
3명 중 1명 꼴로 인터넷에 접근하지 못하는 시민들에게 어떤 방식으로 인터넷과 온라인 상의 도서관 서비스들을 제공할 것인지
공공기관으로서의 도서관의 이상적인 역할에 대해 제대로 체감하게 된 것 같다
그리고 이 느낌은 꽤나 신선하고 충격적이었던 것 같다
새로 알게 된 이 NYPL에 대한 내용은 사실 뉴욕에 살지도 않는 내게 그닥 필요없는 내용이지만
영화가 전달하려 했던 뉴욕라이브러리 그 자체만으로
이 영화는 내게 좀 감동적이었고 충분히 만족스러웠다
그리고 미국은 좀 더 오래 잘 살 것 같다
This was my office yesterday 🤓💻
I needed to get some work done and answer some emails, so @tooleeoh suggested I should go to the NY Public Library... I struggled to concentrate and it’s easy to see why, but it was definitely worth it. Even at the library, NYC tourists are always gazing up! 📚🏛📸
Letha Wilson’s 'Re-Photograms' are now on view at the New York Public Library, as part of the exhibition 'Blue Prints: The Pioneering Photographs of Anna Atkins’. Anna Atkins (1799–1871) came of age in Victorian England, a fertile environment for learning and discovery. Guided by her father, a prominent scientist, Atkins was inspired to take up photography, and in 1843 began making cyanotypes—a photographic process invented just the year before—in an effort to visualize and distribute information about her collection of seaweeds. With great daring, creativity, and technical skill, she produced Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions, the first book to be illustrated with photographs, and the first substantial application of photography to science. Ethereal, deeply hued, and astonishingly detailed, the resulting images led her and her friend Anne Dixon to expand their visual inquiry to flowering plants, feathers, and other subjects. This exhibition draws upon more than a decade of careful research and sets Atkins and her much-admired work in context, shedding new light on her productions and showcasing the distinctive beauty of the cyanotype process, which is still used by artists today. On view until February 17, 2019.

It was 1843... ⠀⠀
...when Anna Atkins started making cyanotypes. Back then, little we knew about the power of illustrating or sequencing a series of photographs in a book.⠀
Driven by her scientific intent to visualize and distribute to others her collection of seaweeds, Atkins produced "Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions", the first endeavour of photographic images in a book. Together with her friend Anne Dixon, she expanded her visual inquiry to plants, feathers, and other objects, in what became the first application of photography to science.⠀
The exhibition "Blue Prints: The Pioneering Photographs of Anna Atkins" at @nypl celebrates Atkins' legacy. The show opened yesterday and runs through February 17.⠀
