1/24/10 River of Words
Two years ago last night, two rain-soaked but hopeful graduate students followed their own paths to a warm drink at Strada. And thus we began. For our anniversary, Eric gave me the most awesome present ever: a map of St. Petersburg constructed of literary quotes about the city. The blue part is the mighty Neva, and you can't miss the exclamatory Nevsky Prospekt in magenta. Given my love for literature, cartography, and the Venice of the North, and the way these things have been woven into our conversations and our life together, I could not think of a more perfect gift.
