1. Started the day at The Secret City. The theme of "Ancestors." Katherine Gleason presented her work on Alexander McQueen; Susan Birnson had everyone taste her canned cherries and apricots (lemongrass, etc--turns canning on its head); we saw Toshinori Hamada present traditional Japanese dance; we listed to Andru Bemis and his banjo, and The Secret City Singers sang Sweet Honey in the Rock.
2. Went from there to the dramatic conclusion of the marathon Moby Dick reading.
3. Headed to the New Museum for the vintage Bowery artists exhibit and Rosemary Trokel exhibit. Have you heard of her? I hadn't. And I have a hard time finding a good link to her online. There was also a tattoo artist tattooing humans in the New Museum's window.
4. The conclusion of our year-long GITP blog experiment looms. I'm still not sure what all these posts have added up to, if the daily blog practice has helped me in any way. Still feel in so many tight places. I still haven't accomplished many of the goals I set on 12/31/11 with Lara. In fact, I feel like I've barely made a dent.
