    This is so ridiculously cool, Margie.

    Come tonight at six. Kathryn and I will be doing show and tell. the work is for sale too - so you can buy something completely real made by virtual people - I am sure you could segue Sophie into your sci-fi world...free champagne too to compensate for art-fatigue

    Wow! This I have to see -- sounds far more compelling than the Bold and the Beautiful :)

    We are the Bold and the Beautiful...Sophie Brown is beautiful, Kathryn and I were bold with her...

    Just reeled in from this. This little piece of Woodstock full of galleries, gallery openings, artists, art lovers, dreamers, entrepreneurs of the gross capital loss model. Margie and Kathryn have a deliciously disturbing noir process (hard to know how to describe it exactly) going on in a corner of the Goodman Gallery (which has views of the mountain worth fainting for and original Kentridges on consignment). The reeling has everything to do with the fact that the Delheim wine and the Grosch beer were flowing. Beautiful young men with vampire skin and pretty girls in 50s frocks or 60s suits everywhere. The hub of the block was a deli called Karen's Kitchen (Karen was at school with Margie), serving the best sandwiches and salads I have hoovered up in a very long time. Asparagus with parmesan and melting little slices of Moroccan pickled lemons, fresh fig and parma ham crostini. Well worth a wander, Capetonians...

    I am very glad that Sophie the Seductress lured you to a new part of town and provided you with delicious and seductive delights. It was very nice to see you there - and Penny too. I hope more writerly types get to see it - I have yet to see the Michael Stevenson exhibits - over the road from the Kitchen...come again and enjoy more

    Aaargh! Scheduling-spawn issue. Sorry I missed it. Is the exhibition still up for a while?

    Yes, all month, I think (?)... plus I think the throngs, food and drink are around for a while. I can't wait to try the chai at Karen's Kitchen (note my priority here).
