Quote for the Day

Sometimes I just need to use this space as my personal filing cabinet for ideas, thoughts, and turns of phraseology that a writer might store on cocktail napkins. At lunch today, discussing the sustainability of high-rise towers (I know, fascinating, I guess I'm not a terribly interesting person) with an architect and a landscape architect.

I began going off on a tangent that the high-rise booms are always fueled by financial deregulation and, in turn, shenanigans which make certain people absurdly wealthy and then to appeal to their ego, must build buildings "so tall they may sword fight with God."

I'm proud of that one. I must say.
