The people that you meet,
when you’re walking down the street…
I’m still waiting for blinds. While waiting, we strolled towards the river. Because I’ve been so immersed in American mid-century design with thrifting the Treehaus, I wanted to look at American painting for a change.
It’s my 1st time at the Whitney.
I was overwhelmed. In London, I love the National Portrait Gallery, and in my other New York life, the MOMA was my hiding place. I took my time on the 8th floor; filled with my favorite- portraiture.
What is it about the painting that you like? Zen asked.
Its tension, its unapologetic stance, its drama.
The paintings I am drawn to, echo back human folly, absurdness, occasional wit; and with that, our strength.
Around me, Manhattan aglow.
So who are the people in your neighborhood? SL asked.
Mrs Vanderbilt Whitney’s ghost, creepy stalker, and Carrie Bradshaw pre-Mr Big, I replied.
Your new home is haunted? Wow!! Super cool, Bibik Tammy!!
