March 22, 2014: ♫ It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to, cry if I want to… ♫ No need for tears here, I’m 24! Weird! Mama and I are traversing New York, stopping by an art gallery in a Presbyterian church to drop off a piece for an upcoming show (Freedom of Fantasy, April 26, 2014), looking at interesting machines, and riding in fast cabs. Now we have to look for food…ttyl! Stay tuned for updates! :D
