this week i

liked sj gould's quote, "the origin of homo sapiens is a tiny twig on an improbable branch of a contingent limb on a fortunate tree".

found what has got to be my favorite restaurant on the east coast. also found my favorite beer in the city limits.

spied at night.

spent saturday night in baltimore with our graduating class..

..most of us had natty bo for old times' sake,
danielle particularly resistant to peer pressure.

danced, made new friends, smiled not for the camera, but for reals.

..something about this city you just can't bottle up and sell in dupont circle.

ate my father's shrimp & mashed potatoes.
