IONTW – September 3, 2017

OK, I’m a little late to the party on it being the two-hundredth anniversary of Henry David Thoreau’s birth (July 12, 1817), but here’s a neat photo of Thoreau’s journal covers, and a lovely book from St. Brigid Press: A Handbook for Creative Protest: Thoreau, Gandhi, & King in Conversation.

Plate o’ shrimp – the photographer of the journal covers was a security guard, another photographer worked as a janitor and has created a fascinating view of those coming to America by collecting and documenting the items confiscated from them. Makes me wonder, again also about that line where the number of somethings tips from clutter to collection.

Backstory on a maker of eclipse glasses. Also an art collector!

I forget that not everyone has a parent and/or grandparent that is into plants and gives them some sense of what things are and how they work.

And, back in the day Bike Monkey showed up in your mailbox. Not the same as holding it – the magazine that is – in your hot little hands and flipping the pages, but takes up less shelf space and can still be enjoyed in the digital.
