and now we’re sipping sleepy time tea #aftertheexhibition


just got back from the exhibition.

it was Quite an Oeuvre – in not a bad way at all – but we’re so overwhelmed by seeing all the lovely people and the nice things that they said and quite frankly realizing that because we had the Flu when we left NYC, we didn’t really get to say goodbye and so perhaps tonight was goodbye or not but yes, probably and there were people from all areas of our life which was a little bit uncomfortable at times and sometimes Rather Lovely and Sweet and then strange again and we Did take some pictures but couldn’t get the angles that we wanted and so we’ve just got one to show you.


Lisa and Lyn who looked beautiful.

and then it was all over – two-and-a-half-hours-later and we drifted outside and there was talk of cabs and uptown/downtown and meeting friends and going on somewhere and we just wanted to sit down quietly and take it all in – the seeing-the-photos-on-the-wall and the Friends and More Friends and then take a walk into the Village and turn left up sixth avenue a bit, turn left again, can’t quite remember where – after bleecker anyway, and then feeling a bit tearful about who-knows-what we suddenly thought “oops, forgot to have supper” (that can happen here) and so we ducked into a bodega and bought a Manhattan-Walking-Snack (seltzer, string cheese and a lemon gluten-free bar with nuts if you’re not sure what that Is) and felt a little less weird about everything and Called a friend back in L.A who made us giggle (we ducked into a chemist/drugstore/purveyor-of-aspirin as it’s Far too noisy to talk on a cellular telephone on the street in NYC and the sad-late-night-love-music made us rather Melancholic – does it sell more aspirin? surely not guvnor) and then we got distracted by the Chinese balloons.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAaren’t they delicious?

isn’t there a scene in either Working Girl (party on staten island right before Alec buys her the inappropriate underwear) or Desperately Seeking Susan (when they all pause to watch the commercial in Jersey at Roberta’s house) where we see chinese lanterns that are really similar? or was it Nobody’s Fool with Rosanna Arquette? hmmm.

can you picture it?

can you send us a picture of it?

we couldn’t find it from Mr. Google.

yes, that’s how easily we get distracted from Vast Feelings about where-we-have-lived and who-we-have-known and how Kind people were to come and see the pictures and so on.




and movies.

seen anything good recently?

we need to fly back to L.A tomorrow and catch up on movie watching now that our exhibition is Alive and has a Life of its own on This Coast.

we hope people sit in ‘sNice on sullivan and get to dream a little about faraway places and  so on while sipping their soy latte.

that would be nice.

that’s why we did those pictures anyway.

to engender a smile and a day-dream.

thank you to everyone that came – and those that wanted to but couldn’t get there – and those of you via the Interweb who came in spirit – that was lovely.

but we’re sort of relieved it’s over.

to tell the absolute truth.

    1. you are Most Kind lady!!!

      and thank you for the beauteousness of young Drew – it was lovely to include that portrait in the show.

      much love, me xx

  2. “and those that wanted to but couldn’t get there” – That certainly was me! I thought of you all day yesterday and am so glad it was a magical evening.

    Super sad we missed each other, but I can’t wait to escape to ‘sNice for lunch one day soon and feel connected to you in that all-knowing way, my dear friend-across-the-coast. CONGRATS!

  3. So glad it went well darling, now it can walk on its own and you can breath out a little more and return to movie lots and palm trees.

    Re movies, I really enjoyed Seven Psychopaths the other day, and have bought a ticket to see Almodovar’s new film ‘I’m so Excited’at The Barbican on Monday. Can’t wait.!

    Spit spot. Xx

do say something - do :-)
