Saturday Morning Summer Walk Around Billings MT


Read the paper from a few days ago. I find that letting it simmer for a few days saves me a lot of time and effort in the long run. It is easier to see what is worth reading a few days later.



Drove downtown late morning probably going to the Soup Place, looking for some early lunch. But I ran into a Strawberry Festival. Very crowded. Big dogs and little dogs and stroller children population of Billings must be rising. Lots of good food, brats, burgers, egg rolls, stir-fried vegetables. Didn't see much in the way of strawberries.



Had not seen this one before. Food looked good. Some nice pork on a stick.



Babcock Building renovation is moving along. In addition to a couple of eateries, now there are a few art galleries. This one had some nice stuff in it. I don't know if the tin ceiling is original or not. Looks too shiny to be old. According to the theatre marquee Elvis will return soon.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
