The latest pursuit of learning takes me to the University of Virginia’s Rare Book School. I wound up with a room in what I refer to as the historic district, though it has an official campus name that I’ve already forgotten.
For a room without air conditioning or a bath of its own, it’s pretty impressive when it comes to ambience. This is my own view …
which I must admit is not necessarily unique.
It’s got a fireplace,
and once had a mail slot.
It was supposed to be a short-term arrangement, but I may stay on as balm for the other decision I’ve made, to catapult myself into the 21at century by attending a seminar on born-digital materials.
Not that there’s not plenty of other historicalness around. Curving brick walls
And so on …
and so on ….
