first—yes. the unimaginable happened. at the moment, i don’t have much more to say than what i already did on instagram. i know there will be more times to talk about trump, but not right now.
so here is my saturday instead:
i walked out on the street and was met by this beautiful view, just like i am every morning.
(obama’s) new york was still worriless and beautiful.
i was planning on going to the new museum, so i took the subway down to lower east side.
turns out, there was some free family event day, and there was an insane line wrapping around the block. nope, i said, and took a stroll through nolita to figure out where to go instead.
new plans! upper east side. started out with hanging out at the big lake in central park.
it didn’t really feel like the city there (but it definitely felt like fall).
after taking a few large breaths by the water, i turned around and went here—to the design museum! aka cooper hewitt.
everything in my everyday life related to design is modern design, so i was pretty surprised to see this building.
inside, there were both modern and classical exhibitions. one on solving societal issues in new ways.
one on fabrics.
in the museum store, i saw this silk tote in the style of cheap plastic take away-bags. so nice!
i continued up to the second floor. the ceiling was so pretty and hogwartsy.
speaking of hogwarts, btw. such pretty staircase models.
a beautifully mosaiced cabinet.
and this swedish apple vase! by ingeborg lundin, if i’m not mistaken.
i was so so tired this day btw, so i sat here in the cafeteria and wrote and wrote (had brought my computer to do exactly that) and stared out the window until it went from this ↑ to this.
ok först — vad jag känner inför valresultatet: detta.
i övrigt: här e min lördag. jag var så trött men ville komma ut, så jag tänkte mig en museumdag. började med att åka ner till new museum på lower east side, men det var en sån galen kö att jag bestämde mig för att dra till design museum på upper east istället. började med några djupa andetag vid sjön i central park innan jag långsamt betade mig igenom cooper hewitt, och sedan skrev och skrev i deras kafeteria tills solen gick ner.
