|The original Tigger.|
Good afternoon from New York City where I spent the day exploring the New York Public Library and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. One of the neat things I saw at the NYPL was a display of the stuffed animals at inspired the writing of Winnie The Pooh. This was my first time in either of the buildings since I was teenager so it was nice to revisit with a new perspective on what I was seeing. If you get the chance to visit either the Met or NYPL, do it. If you cannot visit in-person, both organizations offer nice online resources for students too.
Wherever you are this weekend, I hope that you’re doing something fun too.
