“If you are interested in a thing it is interesting, and if you are not it is not.”—Donald Judd
Last June, I started this column by writing about my collection of vintage Paris travel guides.
It is all already past.
On the largest Christmas store in the South, where people quite literally go to die.
The best thing about dead people is that they are not drunk and annoying.
A small French town, a houseboat, and a dead artist.
Travelers are supposed to hate souvenirs, but I just can't.
On an enormous and haunting chest of drawers in High Point, North Carolina.
A ruined Puerto Rican hotel with an illustrious ocean liner-inspired past.
