Brookes has been undergoing a lot of construction. There have been detours throughout the campus as materials are moved through chain linked fences and other temporary barriers. While the students are away, construction workers scurry through through the corridors with the same velocity, or lackadaisical shuffles. I walked through with a camera to capture the activity.

We journeyed down to London again this morning to listen to Handel's Messiah. Before the evening concert we architoured the Victoria & Albert Museum, and also the Natural History Museum. The V&A had a cool fashion exhibit and Versaille-like room that Lindsay and I felt compelled to waltz in. The Natural History Museum had crazy interior architecture, as well as a cocoon in they catalog bug specimens and display incredible interactive activities. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was incredible, and on the way to the bus stop we had the fortune of stumbling upon a Zaha Hadid addition to a Grade II building in Hyde Park.

The way to care for the poor is not to give, but to empower.
The way to equalize genders is to be the absent high ground.
The way to cure America's sickness is not to criticize, but to be the change you want.
The way to live in peace is to quiet the noise, and recognize who you are.
The way to happiness is not indulgence, but service.
The way to fight darkness is through light, or positivity when negativity is expected.
The way to release aggression is through kindness and sincerity.
The way to gain your life, is to deny your life.
The way to see the world is not to follow its discussions, but to read its people.
Altruistically people participate and give to good causes. With so many good causes, the best causes are sometimes lost within them. Lesser causes waste time, distract minds, and consume resources. The best causes improve people's character, secure their dignity, and ensure their safety.
The law is not a religion. It secures, but does not offend. It must be broad that freedom too might be.
