nonsensical graveyard

What is this place? It’s on North Loop, in Austin, near the vintage shops and such. Is it just a very inefficient graveyard?

Austin’s got some things not many other places have.

My friend Amber is visiting from New York this week. Yesterday we had plans, she was going to go to the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas, and I would meet her there and take her to lunch. It’s just five or six blocks from my office. I didn’t know that I would also be seeing one of the Gutenberg Bibles and the first photograph ever.  And that was just in the lobby. I can’t believe I have had this resource for months and it took a visitor to show it to me.

a quote about aging from someone who didn’t finish getting old

“The older one grows, the more one likes indecency.”

― Virginia Woolf

Well, maybe. It’s true in some cases. People, if they have any sense, are less shocked by indecency as they grow older. Except for the ones in whom the shock response becomes ingrained.
Maybe the “one” Virginia Woolf was talking about was Virginia Woolf.

I do like imagining a world where the oldest people are the least decent. Maybe I’m living in it and just don’t know it yet.
