When I first moved to Charlottesville, I lived in a rental by the edge of thick woods, just off of Route 29, south. I had a few old chairs bought at an antique store and I would bring them out to the jungle and play guitar, or read. I took a photograph of the woods and the chair (you can see a book on it) using my old Graphic press camera and 4X5 Tri-X film. It was overgrown with wisteria and other vines, so whatever light that could get through tended to form beams lighting up areas of the forest floor. The book in this case was “The Joyful Wisdom” by F. Nietzsche, which is also pictured here; http://deasy.com/dreams/consciousness.htm .

I got lost behind the failed Landmark Hotel project and came to the dead end of the Internet. Well, the MapQuest part anyway. Does this mean the Google has finally taken over the known universe?
Since the Landmark Hotel is unfinished and failed, the front door is not much better.
