I attended an art show in Brooklyn last night. The invitation I received read as so:

Gowanus Ballroom and Flambeaux Fire invite you to Paint Works, a group painting exhibition showcasing emerging and established artists in and around Brooklyn. Plus Fire and Aerial performances throughout the night, including special performances by Flambeaux Fire in Veronica Varlow’s debut Flambeaux Fire performance.

As if I would miss paintings, aerial artists, and fire tamers… not to mention a beautiful woman playing accordion singing Macedonian folk songs and a performance by THE PENDULUM SWINGS!

I’m slipping slowly and sweetly back into New York City. I’ve been here three weeks. I find out if my homelessness concludes next week (fingers crossed). I’m off to the country for another fix of everything apple and pumpkin. Such as apple martinis and pumpkin bread.

I imagine I’ll do some writing while I’m out there… I’ve been doing quite a bit of that lately.

More shots from last night:
