french and skytrains
i had such an exciting experience on the bus the other day. i was reading eve kosofsky sedgewick's touching feeling (cos i'm a nerd, that's why), and came across this passage:
"Marriage isn't always hell, but it is true that le mariage, c'est les autres: like a play, marriage exits in and for the eyes of others."
which, admittedly, doesn't sound that good out of context, but the exciting thing was that i read the french! i translated it without even thinking about it. it was entirely cool.
and now for some images of riding a train with no driver. particularly dramatic fog this morning, with buildings looming out of it and a big blue sky beginning above.
i think this would be better on widescreen, so if you're keen, go to this webpage and click on the weird evolving rectangle on the bottom right hand corner of the video screen and it will go big. if that makes sense.
