In her 2010 Museum of Modern Art show “The Artist Is Present,” performance artist Marina Abramovic sat at a table silently, while spectators took turns sitting across from her. I love this moment when her former artistic and romantic partner Ulay takes his turn sitting at her table.

Andrew Solomon’s new New Yorker post about abortion laws puts into words what I have been trying to express for the past two years. I am so grateful for the work he has been doing and the work he did in the past.
I know grief well and I know that the only way out is through.
Listening to Bonnie Prince Billy’s “I See A Darkness,” remembering my friend and sitting with the darkness a bit.
Sitting with the darkness makes it easier to see the beauty of the light.
I wish he had let me share the burden of his darkness.
I’ll miss you sweet friend.
Spent coffee time looking at artist Gabriele Galimberti’s Toy Story project. My favorite is Maudy-Kalulushi, Zambia.
I seem to recall when your love
Seemed to be all I was so sure of
It could break my fall
I seem to recall
She has some good things to say…

I will always be grateful to Kate for founding Glow In The Woods.

We started the afternoon at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden with cupcakes and warm coffee in the parking lot.
After starting the process of getting Amalia a memorial brick, we strolled around the grounds in the drizzle.
Tomorrow we are going to pick up Andrew Solomon’s Far From the Tree.
I’m hoping that Ama’s days will be like Hanukkah, a little reflecting, remembering, and celebrating for 17 days.
