Tomorrow, at last, the final cache will be released. Or not.

Surrounded by mist and glowing bridges, I live and love and hope and wait.

Exploring some potentially delicious gastro options in Brooklyn ~ hunting for a dazzling, quiet unicorn, and ridiculous heaps of Bearnaise… but let us get ahead of ourselves. Anticipatory armchair travels ~ you always end much too soon!

Could not find that documentary on Hilbert’s Tenth, Julia Robinson and the Diophantine e’s. Simply not available for streaming – anywhere, not anymore. Hmm. Therefore, until a copy is purveyed from the next source, contemplating a living room projection of an English b&w drama on such a bleaky afternoon ~ perhaps something Brontë-ish; as for the tolerant audience, being 66.6% canine, they will likely not raise any issues.

Teichmüller and differential surfaces – the beauty of marked hyperbolic structures, the free joy of geometry. Check WP Thurston and low-dim 3-manifolds, foliation, Haefligers and loose ends on that. The elusive concordances and diffes….

It is early, like six or so. Outside, the crow is very engaged in its own hymn to Summertime.

A tribute to the more discreet hummingbird and its magic flight in reverse, this is one by the lonesome Miss Emily D., written so long ago:

A Route of Evanescence, 
With a revolving Wheel – 
A Resonance of Emerald 
A Rush of Cochineal – 
And every Blossom on the Bush 
Adjusts its tumbled Head – 
The Mail from Tunis – probably, 
An easy Morning’s Ride –

Finding beauty in unsuspected places… oh Life Surprising!
