The first week of September is bittersweet. I know I will be saying goodbye to good times on the lake, bbq’s and laying out in the sun. The good news is that autumn is just around the corner and also my absolute favorite time of year!
Aten Reign is an installation by James Turrell specifically designed for the rotunda of the Guggenheim. I went today and didn’t want to leave. This is the most powerful artwork I’ve seen in quite some time. As I was laying on the floor of the museum and staring up I felt like I was in a dream or just existing for a moment on another plane of existence.
I wish the Chelsea Hotel would reopen its doors to the public. I’m patiently waiting to live a day in the life of Patti Smith and stay in this historic landmark building. Apparently there’s some issues with the new owners and current long-term tenants. Until that day comes, whenever I’m in the mood to feel like a 70’s artist/musician, I enjoy drinks next door at the landmark lounge El Quijote
