The Flat Café in Vršovice, Prague

I’m a fan of James Hoffman, and it seems not the only one in Prague. The Flat Café carries Square Mile coffee. S. at the Vrsovice café and I talked about favorite Hoffman YouTubes when I visited. It also qualifies as a literary venue because of its “No laptops/No studying” signs.

I’ve always wanted to see if The Wayback Machine had any Pittsburgh Signs materials. It does, lots. https://web.archive.org/web/20090106021855/http://pittsburghsigns.org/archives/2004/11/the-electric-ba.html @

Washington Post article by Starre Vartan on the benefits of dance.

“We hold every experience we’ve ever had in our body, so being able to move may release something that we’ve been holding, tucked away in a muscle,” says Angela Grayson, a clinical psychologist and president of the American Dance Therapy Association. “The muscle has the memory of it, and when we’re moving, we can release that.”



What are the Chances?

After nearly seven years in Prague I still keep finding things. Walking down to Vrsovice, I spotted one of those art vending machines (née cigarette vending machines). What are the chances I would have fifty crowns with me to feed the Artmat? I’ve been thinking about the surrealist concept of hasard objectif and how random nature provides meaningful information. Things just keep showing up.

Inspiring Spaces

I’m not feeling it this morning, not that I should have to feel it to get work done. In any case, I’m thinking of inspiring spaces. I’m very grateful for the space I have but I also like to think of other people’s spaces, all the while knowing how little affect it might have on getting work done. This is from a Home Designing article called “Funky Spaces with Artistic Flair.”

I have no idea what all is in this photo, but I am intrigued by the steaming coffee cup.
