Uh oh. #Spring #Cleaning has morphed into an @apttherapy style #home #makeover. The rearranging/redecorating will be Instagrammed. No “before” photos though, only “after.” This is going to be fun.
May have missed the reading…but now I have a cool portrait of myself drawn by a stranger. If you already saw on FB: I needed an Instagram version for avatar purposes! And, even when illustrated, I just look better in #amaro #instacurity (at The Owl’s Head)
Another #spacesuit inside @NASA lobby. #NASASocial #astronauts #history #space (at NASA HQ)
Inside the lobby @NASA. Seeing #space and #astronaut memorabilia never gets old. #spacesuit #NASASocial #WashingtonDC (at NASA HQ)
Diorama inside the #library @NASA HQ. #Space #Peeps! #NASASocial #WashingtonDC (at NASA HQ - Library)
More from #WashingtonDC: ceiling in the rotunda at the #Capitol building. #architecture #art
A shot from the #Skylab slideshow. @spacelauren @NASAhistory is there a gallery of those images online somewhere? #NASASocial (at NASA HQ - Auditorium)
The #Skylab panel was really great. I mean, who doesn’t love hearing #astronauts tell stories about #space exploration? #NASASocial

Hey there, strangers! It’s been awhile, huh? I’ll do another post soon telling you what the heck I’ve been up to since…last September? In the meantime, please enjoy these lovely flowers in front of someone’s home in D.C., where I’m currently on an impromptu visit.
Going to start cross-posting my Instagrams here again, but I wanted to say hi first instead of suddenly reappearing on your dashboards with a flurry of photos from D.C. Hope you’re all doing splendidly!
New York Stock Exchange. Not as crowded down here as I thought it’d be today. #NYSE #nyc #9/11 (Taken with Instagram at New York Stock Exchange)
I have no idea I how I managed to never notice this until today. #Lost #4815162342 #numbers (Taken with Instagram at Professor Thom’s)

Even those of you who have graduated and gone on to learn that real life is either just as fake or largely lame as I promised you it would be. I was reluctant to let you in on that secret, but it’s no real secret, and by now you would’ve known anyway. It wasn’t even a spoiler in any proper sense, because most of life after school is spoiled, no matter what hints of uncertain excitement or potential or other sorts of otherwise-ness you felt during your last days of classes and exams. You felt guardedly happy, no? It was nice, even liberating, but also precipitous, that sensation, right? Like you were jumping up and down with a smile while wondering how all of a sudden a wide chasm gaped beneath you? You had all those feelings, and they were all fine and useful to have at the time, but then a week later everything was back to being strangely, dangerously normal. Routine, quotidian, lacking in enthusiasm of all sorts. Especially by now, months later. Weeks of whatever. That chasm gaping beneath you before? That was the great yawn of the boredom that is the future. And now you’ve fallen in.
I’m kidding, of course.
No, I’m just mildly exaggerating. — An excerpt from my friend (and CUNY Art History and Italian professor) Paul D’Agostino’s email to his students in advance of the Fall semester, quoted with permission.
