  4. Didn't mean school, meant building. I have school on the brain today because I am still home sick. I need to go back to work.

  13. Very cool building.

    By the way, MY WIFE is in Brooklyn for the next couple of days, so if you see someone during your travels that looks like MY WIFE? It might be her :-)

  20. Sweet capture! I love mosaic work partly because I'd never have the patience to do it, but mostly because you can stare at it for hours and it always gives you something new to look at.
