I have been terrible at updating!  Also, how do I add icons? I need "Pink Hitler Approves" and a bunch of others!
Warning: icky medical stuff )

My sister Tessa was here for a few days. She and her kids are traveling to Italy to establish a temporary residence so they can have dual Italian/American citizenship. I would do it but it costs thousands of dollars.  Yesterday we went to the Whitney Museum, a huge museum that relocated downtown.  Beautiful building, lots of excellent exhibits and some real crap.  On a wall where a black artist had done paintings of his service in World War 2, hung a poem by W.H. Auden, September 1, 1939.  It was written the day World War 2 broke out.  It's gorgeous.  taiga_13 will appreciate it.  Here it is...it's hella long..

SEPTEMBER 1, 1939

On Fifty-second Street
Uncertain and afraid
As the clever hopes expire
Of a low dishonest decade:
Waves of anger and fear
Circulate over the bright
And darkened lands of the earth,
Obsessing our private lives;
The unmentionable odour of death
Offends the September night.
