Can’t Escape the Day Job.

I actually had a few evenings off this week and I actually managed to go to an art opening that wasn’t my own! Imagine that. It’s been… well, a long time.  Working evenings has this nasty side effect of not being able to go and do much of anything artistic or “cultural” because everyone else is on a 9-5 schedule and by the time you’re done at 10, everything has closed.  Anyhow, I ventured over to the Library Show at Firehouse 13 and what greeted me at the door? Portraits of Shakespeare and Vonnegut, rendered in coffee grounds. There it was – literature and coffee. My day job haunting me in this sacred space.

(For the record, I did have a lot more fun at Firehouse 13 than I do on a typical Thursday night at the daily grind [har, har].)
