Up, Up, And Away!


Dude----I'm flying to New York tomorrow!

I woke up this morning in an absolute panic. Why on earth do I always pack at the last minute? Then of course besides the normal travel preparation insanity, add to the mix a heavy dose of pre-show jitters. What if the shows sucks, what if it's installed all wrong? What if nobody comes, or what if a bunch of people come but they hate my work? What if all these years I've been kidding myself and I should have just gone to law school? What if a herd of wild boars attacks me during the opening....

Then at 8AM this morning I got a skype IM from the show's program director which simply read: "Wanted to tell you that your work looks AMAZING!!!"

And with that all my anxiety turned into excitement.

Now all I can think about is that in a few hours (ok more than a few) I'll be in a cab headed towards my old Brooklyn neighborhood, then I'll hop on a train to the East village to have a beer with my best buddy, and later fall asleep on Kasia and Kelly's couch, only to wake up the next day just in time to have a greasy breakfast at Tom's Diner, and Gus will serve us fresh orange slices and cookies while we wait for our table....

I love Brooklyn.

So, peace out. For the next week I will be internet-less by choice! But to be sure I'll be back with tales and photos from this week's NYC adventures....unless of course the wild boars get me.
