Moving Right Along


Just can't resist having a look at the progress on the new ballpark here in Billings. This was one of the first things I checked out when we returned from Rome, Italy. They are moving along: imagine that in December and January in Montana. Oh sorry, I've let out a usually well-kept secret.

Gary Roller, general manager for the Mustangs, has told me that I have some season seats just behind the Mustangs' dugout on the third base side. See above for the dugout in the background. Those of you who remember the old Cobb Field will also remember having to look into the sun in the late afternoon and early evening because the home dugout was on the first base side. And see also the splendid web pages of the Parks and Recreation people here in Billings.

“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
