BJ and I both got the day off from our jobs yesterday for MLK, so after our morning workout, we headed downtown to explore and do some work. First, we went to the Issues Magazine Store, where we finally found some of the magazines we’ve been missing. Then we grabbed some lunch at Empire Cafe. We looked at some antiques, ogled vintage library catalogue drawers (wouldn’t that be nice for art supplies), and left empty-handed. Before heading back home, we spotted a little store tucked away called Domy Books, and it turned out they mainly carried art books and zines! Our purchases included a Japanese graphic novel and a catalogue of children’s book illustrations.

A view from my car window.
Today, I am constantly overwhelmed at the greatness and significance of this day. I find myself biting my tongue at my job when I hear ignorant and ridiculous talk. It seems nothing can convince people to make smarter and more respectful comments. But even that kind of ugliness can’t take away what today means to me and so many people.
