For just a moment, thinking outside the blog …

John Drew’s Monday 10 December post on Brooks and Free Speech has certainly had a galvanizing effect on EphBlog’s readership. Well-posted, John, and well-written.
However, if you are like me, and I know I am, you may need a distraction from campus concerns. This is not to say turn to the front pages of the NYT, WaPo, and Politico. Presidential hysteria, climate calamity, and world economic and political collapse will not provide respite.

So let your eyes enjoy 10 design trends of 2018 as reported by Augusta Pownall (as close to a Williamstown tie-in as I could get) for DeZeen Magazine.

 Just because becoming dehydrated is a personal concern, here for sake of a picture on the blog:

• Urban water fountains pop up

… and yet another personal favorite …

• Bauhaus is back!

Let your eyes do the walking for a break.

Swart’s masterism again on display with “However, if you are like me, and I know I am, . . . .”. If the Quote Wall is still around, that beauty ranks right up there with the renowned Finleyism: “flopping like a landed fish . . . . .”. Look it up and judge for yourself.
