The weather has been great!

I’ve been cycling more now that morning temperatures are in the 50’s. My average speed is a bit on the low side as compared to last summer’s. My experience is that when I shed some of the extra clothing as the heat arrives I can move a lot faster. Also there tends to be more competition with other riders as they begin to cluster in the park. I rode my first long ride of 54 miles this week. That’s 7 times around the park so it feels a little like going around a merry go round making it a dizzying experience.

The full moon this weekend brought about my announcing to the guy I share my studio with notice to leave. It’s never pleasant to ask someone the look elsewhere for a living situation. Changes in the precarious situation of the studio made it necessary to arrange for either someone more suitable to art to live in our loft. It’s just that we are metrosexuals here and need a like minded person to share with. I interviewed an architect/artist who is the studio manager for a sculptor, a dutch guy who is in hotel management and another art curator at the Dahesh Museum who lives with his lover in Soho looking to have his own place. All were pleasant people who would fit the artist loft scene. Then another interesting librarian who teaches at Pratt stopped by after learning that developers who recnetly bought his west village apartment have plans to evict the current tennents or raise the rents to unreasonable numbers.

David Sliney has said that he would be willing to contribute work to the upcoming exhibit… so far that’s three of us… I’m still looking toward more people.
