On Saturday, I took part in one of the most beautiful parties I ever attended- the sort of party that makes you happy to be young, alive, in New York and part of this blessed art family. Cynthia von Buhler took over a giant penthouse next to the Empire State Building for her birthday. And she filled it.
Cotton candy. Striped beds. Art. Mermaids. Jason Webley rocking it troubedour style. Amanda Palmer watched by oil slicked mermaids. Sxip Shirey. Body part vending machines. I met Lemmony Snicket!
Me and Cynthia collaborated on an in an installation of dead mermaids, with Cynthia as the live one in the tub.
Katelan Foisy read tarot cards. Neil Gaiman and Amanda toasted their impending marriage with chamapagne. The night faded out as me and Katelan whirled on a rooftop carosel, the lights of the Empire State Building shining through a haze of bubbles.
Feel so very lucky.
