Saturday morning started off to alerts from many friends that the L train wasn't running in either direction, making my easy hop skip and a jump to Brooklyn nearly impossible. Tara commented, how amazing it was that people were genuinely concerned that I make it to where I needed to go, and invested beyond just agreeing to sit for their portrait. My first stop was old Hampshire friend, writer and musician, Matt (formerly of Hampshire all time favorite, New Radiant Storm King). It was really great to catch up and he was even sweet enough to share his breakfast bacon with me. A nice start to a hectic day.
Marina & Antony, who I hadn't met in real life. Marina and I have been e-mailing back and forth because she is a writer and wants to do a story on the project so she didn't feel like a total stranger and she sent me a link to Antony's website - he didn't feel like a total stranger either, I felt like we shared a similar
Hester Street Fair to see Juli (who gave me a lovely scarf) and a quick margarita before heading to Justine and Jodi's. Justine is another Hampshire friend who is a video editor, and Jodi is a graphic designer. They made me delicious cocktails, a delightful cheese platter and then pasta and red sauce! Shara another Hampshire friend joined us for dinner, too.
