I had a big panic attack this morning. While the baby sleeps, I am enjoying a drink and some time working on a piece. It relates to 9/11. But I’m already sweating my artist’s comment. I’m afraid this work will be interpreted as “YAY, AMERICA, BOO EVERYBODY ELSE!!!” That’s not how I mean it. I mean it more like “The city survived.” I’ve got a whole bunch of other thoughts I could put in the comment…like the fact that I think this country will be destroyed by the greedy rich, the Republicans and right-wing terrorists before it will be destroyed by foreign sociopaths flying airplanes…but honestly I’m not interested in the politics of the piece, more the raw defiance of the woman as she represents New York.

First person to talk about the scale of the woman a.) will get a pen in the eye b.) doesn’t get it.
