With A Flourish

Spring in New York and New Jersey
continues to do its magical, bewitching dance.

Joey Ramone continues to hold court 
on Bleecker and Bowery, diagonally
across the street from the former CBGBs.

Everything is in bloom.
Millions of petals get strewn.

For a mere 8 dollars
you can party like it's 1979.

I recently became a member of The Whitney, 
the first museum I have ever bought membership to.

Keith Haring background from The Pop Shop.

drawing on leather on the same backdrop.

I revisited the Richard Barnes and
Amanda Krugliac show State Of Exception 
at Parsons with my friend Kristen. I needed 
another look at this stunning masterpiece which
includes items discarded by migrants traveling
on foot on the US - Mexico border in Arizona.
