Ann Hamilton's event of a thread

This is what I did in NYC. I laid on the floor beneath a giant white sheet that was being moved by a system of swings and pulleys in a huge armory in Manhattan. It was probably the most amazing installation art I've ever experienced. I am hoping for many poems to come.

THNKR Videos: Illustrator Maira Kalman on Walking and Wandering and Books and Theater and Despair and Fruit Bowls

Seriously, watch both of these videos back to back. You'll fall in love. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from Maira Kalman.
"Half the time I don't know what's going on. But I love it." 
"Allowing my brain to empty. Which usually means taking a walk....Wonderful things happen when your brain is empty." 
"It's very important not to be bored for too long. Like more than a minute."
"I'm pretty much off-kilter all the time."
"It gave me a wonderful platform to just wander around and talk about stuff that I really like, from books and theater and despair and fruit bowls. Things like that." 
"I'll get to the point at some point."
"...if you don't look at the things that catch your attention along the way...I don't think you've had any fun."
