Sunflowers in South Orange New jersey Bikram Speaks Gold Statue Stands World Cup

May 17, 2011

Not much longer into the same spring (on May 10 , 2010) as the Richard Prince opening at the Salon 94 outpost on the Bowery, this blogger went to see the yogi Bikram Choudhury (usually just known as Bikram ) whose 26 hatha moves he had doing for six plus year speak at the Riverside church under the auspices of the new East Harlem Bikram Hot yoga center. ¬†Wearing a white hat and suit like on his lounge singer c.d’s Bikram amused the crowd to no end while being forthright but never phony.

Next I went to an exhibition at a French Restaurant in South Orange, New Jersey area dedicated to sunflowers curated by a woman named Madelaide a long time bff of my great friend Deborah Rabinsky and featuring among other Deborah’s husband Rick Hildebrandt’s blossoms.
