  1. Anne. Did you go to this? I wish I would have known about your work then, I would have liked to have met you. I went and traveled down to DC from Columbus for the weekend to come to this. And to see my friend Joseph Marioni. The section on Color was amazing, way better than any of the others. I need to get in touch with them and see if they can make me a DVD of that symposium.

    Have a wonderful week. DC seems to have so much going on. Makes me wanna visit more.
