and I think of these 2 spaces:

1. the opera house
2. the library

1
Fitzcarraldo
Werner Herzog
Klaus Kinski
1982

one man's love
of the opera takes
him on an insane
journey up the
amazon river.

a lot like Hearts of Darkness
Burden of Dreams, documents
the pure insanity of Herzog & Kinski
during the making of the film.
...among other things.
brilliant.


2.
NY Public Library

whenever people
visit nyc, i always take
them to the library.

the reading room has
to be one of the most
inspiring spaces
in the city.

i like the idea of
breakfast at tiffany's
and the choreography
of requesting a book
...and dressing for
the occasion.

Yum, the library. I was on a 7-day boat trip with Herzog once. I'm enjoying your blog, and tagged you over on mine, if you are in the mood...
