Re: pammy
it's weird, i've known about this for awhile, i think my friend brian told me, but all i knew was it would be in feb. sometime. then i woke up this morning, and read a bit of my 'artist calendar' mag and whaddya know, an article on christo! and they said it would be finally put together TODAY.

wish it could be up longer, but that's kinda the beauty behind it. it's fleeting, therefore more precious..

Art and Friendship
I heard the second half of an NPR radio piece about this project. The project is a little random to start with, and catching the second half of the conversation made it absolutely mysterious and fascinating. So I dug through the NPR archives and relistened to the whole thing until I remembered who this guy was and the fabric fence across california etc etc. So incredibly cool. Oh how i'd love to see the thing... I am sorry to hear that you and Chuck cannot make it to NY because now there's absolutely no way for me to live vicariously through the two of you.

And I hope it's not too presumptious of me to pounce on your journal and add you to my Friends list. I have been reading Dean's journal for a while, then found Chuck's a few weeks ago, and now yours. Having recently relocated to Boise, Idaho (from portland) I am craving some like-minded folk and reading your journal is like coming home, which for me, is a very good thing.

Re: Art and Friendship
well, let me just say, that i think you MUST be psychic! cuz i've been noticing your posts, too, and wondered who you were and just thought about adding you TODAY! when i asked chuck about you, being the boy that he is, his first comment was, 'oh yeah, that's the woman that flies a lear jet, the cadillac of planes..she could've chosen to fly a cessna citation, but no, she went with the LEAR!'

'WELL then,' i thought. this woman's worthy of further inspection!

and i am definitely going to check out the christo special tonight on NPR (special runs at 6pm) and if i don't catch it all, i'll be all over the website tomorrow.

seriously, i'm honored you added me (i added you, too), like minds indeed.
