In college, four stories of open stacks, cast iron railings, bottle glass floor, spiral staircase wrapped in stone six feet thick. Reading Jorge Luis Borges. Some nights, when it was too late to go home to my apartment, I’d sleep there, hidden away in the stacks. Fifty years later, it remains a popular location for my dreams. I worked on these for about two years, 2018 – 2020.
