office life

One last view from our window of the Austin Omni, a hotel I fervently hope never to stay in again - at least, not with an inside view.  This shows the offices, layers after layer of them, as though one had opened the front door of some crazed corporate dolls house (and may I recommend Nikil Saval's Cubed: A Secret History of the Workspace, as the only possible accompanying reading matter?).  Last night the view was enhanced by the Bachelors of Austin Debutantes' Ball - this season's debutantes were being Presented at a ceremony/party in the Omni court.  Luckily, we missed almost all of this occasion, which had magnificent flowers, and seemed spectacularly white and wealthy - a mind-boggling time-warp, a microcosm of certain Texan society.
