A Baltimore weekend

Here are a few snaps from my trip to visit Kelley in Baltimore– a smattering flavor of the oddness and utter silliness that tends to pervade our visits; laughing til it hurts. Concocting plans like the founding of The Institute of Fun (for Higher Learning)*. Or, upon seeing a hideous and depressing structure (eg The Pavilion of Infinite Sadness), saying with no little sarcasm, “Thanks, Modernism!” Things like this just crack us up.

The laughter and silliness really don’t come through in the photos, though. (They just look kinda’ arty if you weren’t there. You’ll just have to take my word on it.)

*”With a foundation built upon the Socratic method, our approach shall render both professors and students as experiential~existential toothpicks– in short, facing questions large or small, we get up in there.
