In Charlottesville

Safe and sound. I'm in the Lawn which was designed by Thomas Jefferson--the room has a fireplace, a wooden rollertop writing desk, and is in general so dang eighteenth century. Oh and it has a rocker that you can put out on the porch to rock in.

Once I got settled in I went in search of food. I opted for an organic sandwich and tea place for a belated lunch because you would never see such a thing in Bryan. I had what purported to be a berry smoothie but tasted pervadingly of wheat germ. So it goes.

Afterwards found an EXCELLENT used bookshop. I behaved (mostly). For $14 I got two MZB paperbacks, a 1916 Sara Crewe (y'know, Fred Burkle's favorite book), and a copy of the Rubaiyat which matches a volume of Indian love lyrics I bought lo many moons ago.

Am writing in Alderman Library which is gorgeous, but also about to close. Stay tuned!!!
