Tu me manques

Walking towards the Seminary Co-op to get a book by Foucault that is difficult to find elsewhere in the city, I overheard a young man talk excitedly to his friend about an "altered reality." I thought to myself, Yes, I'm back in Hyde Park. As they walked past me, I wanted to smile and cringe at once.

After buying my book, I voluntarily entered the Regenstein, claimed a study space in the bookstacks, and got some much-needed work done. That I can get work done better at the Regenstein than anywhere else in the world also makes me want to smile and cringe at once.
