My friend Dotathy (aka Melissa) had a show at her studio in Gowanus. I left the East Village, yes I did, & went to Brooklyn. Intrepid me! Especially, as my friend Maggie once said, It just seems like it's farther for us to go there than for them to come here. Dot embroiders on photos, & they are textured, beautiful, way more than the sum of their parts. Then I went to hang out with another friend in a different part of Brooklyn, my Norwegian teacher Marie-Therese in fact, but it was too late in a long day for me to manage to say anything much på norsk. I may go to Brooklyn again someday.
