A dream day ended in a dream room. Yayoi Kusama’s Firefly room @ the Whitney is a must see.
I never post a personal note, but do you ever find yourself in just the right place at the right time? Standing in the firefly room I found myself aligned with just the right minute, on the right day, with just the right person. It was simply splendid. I hope to never forget that, ever.
