Wednesday, April 24, 2013: It’s in my honey, it’s in my milk.


First stop was the bindery. Formatted March. Couldn’t print it because the print room doesn’t open until 1 and I had somewhere to be at 1:30. There were two MFA students working on a really nice collaborative book project. Anyway. Julian Olidort, a friend from way back when in Ramaz/KJ and more recently, Brandeis, was in town for the day!  We met at St. Paul’s, walked, talked, and sat in the Whispering Gallery to catch up for a while. Glass, research grants, the wonders of upstate New York, Swedish forests, and Danish design. It’s a beautiful cathedral, St. Paul’s. One of the most beautiful houses of worship I’ve ever seen. Possibly the most beautiful. After our walk around St. Paul’s, we crossed the Millenium Bridge and saw the Lichtenstein retrospective at the Tate Modern. Well done. Well curated. Great to see his  body of work in one place. I’ve never more than a few paintings of his at once and they never gave me a sense of his exploration within pop art, the process that led him to it and his experimentation through out his career. And hey! How about those sculptures? Who knew! After the museum we crossed back over the Thames, sat in Starbucks and remembered Ramaz. Oh, Ramaz.

Then I headed to the Tube to go home and inevitably walked and wandered some unfamiliar streets and got home eventually. Planned on spending the evening working on summer plans but then I realized I left my laptop in my locker at the Slade. Ah, well. So I read all evening. Halfway through my book, don’t know where it’s going/what it’s about.

I think that’s about it.

Also. On my walk back home yesterday I saw two flower shops selling lilies of the valley and I got very excited. And last night I dreamt about lilies of the valley and it was so fragrant and great. And next week I will buy lilies of the valley in Paris! Huzzah!

The end.
