“Home desk. Brooklyn apartment. Building 10 years, this apartment 1 year.
Hanging on the wall to the right of the window is my Chinese paintbrush made of coral. My girl Athena brought this to me from Bejing. On desk: to the right of my beloved Imac, is an original Sandra Magsamen vase she threw herself and signed personally–it is inscribed with “your love makes me feel like a star”…also given to me by Athena. On the desk near the phone is a Barbara Kruger note cube. It’s from her untitled work “it’s a small world but not if you have to clean it”) 1990. She is one of my favorite artists and this little cube has been with me for over a decade. On the wall to the left of the desk are 2 pieces: one given to my by my sister. It’s a scribble with the printed word “artist.” The piece below is a watercolor done by my 5-year-old son Benjamin. On the adjacent wall is a painting of a calla lily I did in my late teens.

It’s safe to say Kate’s quite fond of Emily’s Me & Ro collection. She also likes the warm bask of light shining through the window. Her girl Athena sounds really nice. Emily is all heart, all New York.
