« Book Review Post - Deborah Landau's The Last Usable Hour [by Jennifer Michael Hecht] | Main | Dan Nester on Jim Morrison »

October 19, 2011


What a great blog post, Amy. You, Merrill's ouija board, pattern recognition, and a recurring Piazza Navonna. Fantastic.

Thanks for your posts, compelling writing. "Pattern recognition is the human method for validating knowledge. Harnessing it is how we make art." I am definitely going to keep that in my pocket for a while. Funny enough, references to Rome have been my own personal pattern the past week, your most recent on Rome & mosaic is what made me read through the rest!

left the house

of coming back
ten hours later
