particular loves
bamboo, coral, moss, woodgrain, silhouettes & other cut-outs, plastic, low-resolution images, the photo copier, off-registration prints, Max Ernst's Lunar Asparagus, NYC fire call boxes that look like Kannon, Fauvist color sense, the Noguchi Museum, pretty much all of Abstract Expressionism

favorite heel style
the wedge, but a sleek modern interpretation

second favorite
the stiletto

current shoe obsession
alas, the sneaker. (because I live in nyc and walk a ton!) but not too sneakery of a sneaker. more of a sneaker disguised as a shoe, like a mary jane style or a high-tech looking black one with a metallic accent. how about Royal Elastics? I must go try some on. I really like the non-sneakeryness of their styles.





red book dialogues at the rma

I am kind of interested in this Red Book Dialogue at the RMA. John Adams. More opportunities for learning. Why not. Here's an excerpt from his opera, Nixon in China. And here's his Website.

Many of the dialogues are sold out at the Rubin, but there are still plenty available. The first dialogue with Bob Thurman was very rewarding, so I am kind of interested in going to another.

So cool your're interested! Happy to tell you about the Bob Thurman dialogue. (He was my professor at Amherst, so I am extra proud.) So he was asked to look at one of Jung's mandalas and describe it, while a Jungian analyst would walk him through it. What the Jungian analyst did not predict, for some reason, was that Thurman, being a Tibetan Buddhist scholar, needed no prompting in understanding the mandala as a concept. And he was really right on the money in terms of analyzing Jung's mental state when he made this mandala. It was really good fun. The best part was soaking up all of Thurman's knowledge when he went on tangents. He touched on topics ranging from the current state of Tibet, to India, to US politics to Buddhism, to art, to Jung's own personal history and more. Quite amazing!
