It has been too long since we saw each other last. But now I am writing to make a date with you. It is going to be you and me.
We are doing a get together, as they say in New Hampshire. Francisco will be sharing with us his Caprichos. Sandy is preparing his trip to Paris with his circus, but he has something political and sublime for the space. I haven't told you, have I? We leased a new space with a Romeo & Juliet balcony for declarations and declamations. Yes, after all it is election year�. So I happen to be choosing.
Glenn stopped by and will be lending a mirror, now. Karin, of course, will be doing her partitions and situations... that always means more people. Mario went on an expedition in Mexico �Dave will dance with you; Paul is providing the stage lights and; Tim is doing his collaboration with KOS and Henry Street Settlement; Fabian has effervescent dollars�.
(Rumor has it that a group of your social conceptualist friends will be here to greet you)
But let's catch up here; there is so much I need to talk with you. Fill you in.
Let me know when you can come. Or don't; just come any time. We will be here. Our space is always here, for you and I.
Anyhow, I can't tell you how honored (or intensified, or black and blue, or shocked and awed, or rarified) we would be with your presence.
