      My parents were sitting in an outdoor cafe on the Champs Elysee in 1959 when Elvis Presley walked by in his army uniform. My mother grabbed the invitation from the Reception they had just attended, and ran after Elvis to ask for his autograph. She said by the time he had finished signing his name they were surrounded by other people who recognized him. The autograph disappeared for over 10 years until a laundry room flood caused the moving of boxes, and the autograph was found. It’s now locked away safely, in a safety deposit box.

      Govinda is my favorite DC gallery and Chris is one of my favorite curators, and I would love to attend this opening. Alas, I will need to be at the Sanity Rally this Saturday as I have a guest who is flying in from the left coast to attend it.
