These are among a number of vintage New Year's postcards available at New York Public Library Digital Gallery, but Joanna Ebenstein at Morbid Anatomy picked the best ones. So far no one has commented on the significance of the mushrooms and I'd really like to know. Ideas?
On the way to work I was reading Japanese ghost stories and came across this poem:
Miru mono nari to
Hiru sae yume no
Think not that dreams appear to the dreamer
only at night: the dream of this world of pain
appears to us even by day.
Mitate no Kinko by Suzuki Harunobu (18th Century)

This historic 12,000-square-foot Marin mansion sold for 65 million dollars. It just boggles the mind. The property tax on that house alone should resolve the county’s budget issues.
UPDATE: Scratch that. The new owners won't have to worry about a tax bill. Property taxes are waived because of the historic designation. Here's the listing.
