Second: Sometime within the last few days I had an appointment in the Adams Building of the Library of Congress, and the person I was meeting with had a beautiful office with a window that overlooked the Jefferson Building, the Supreme Court, and the Madison Building. This person moved in to a temporary space for renovation, but the view remains the same. I envy anyone who has a window - whether it has a view or not. This week, we went to visit a colleague who recently relocated to the Jefferson Building. Her window view is not overlooking an outside street- but rather- overlooks a courtyard with a fountain and garden that faces the center of the building. It's more like a hidden treasure. But I understand that the rats like it in the Spring- and that might be something interesting to observe. I, on the other hand, am in the biggest, most boring building with a window that is useless, has no view, and no light. The rats I observe are of a different nature, and they are there all year 'round.
