Back from Squam Art Workshop and then Chicago. Last night.
My mind is still swirling and incoherent. I borrowed bunch of books from the library, took lots of photos, baked, browsing through recorded TV programs, cleaning up, cutting papers, since this morning. I am all over the place.
I need more time to organize my newly acquired memories into order.
Upon returning to work from tomorrow, I have a feeling that this phrase is going to be my mantra for the next few months: “You cannot understand the world by dissecting it.”
It’s a title of the above book, written by a Japanese molecular biologist. The title caught my eye because, ironically, I am working on a series of customer segmentation projects for over an year now. Maybe I am growing tired of it by now.
Other books are bunch of regional planning / urban design books. I haven’t read any of those in 10 years, but visiting Chicago got me really into this. One of them is by my old professor. More, soon.
