LondonDanh Vo: Cathedral Block, Prayer Stage, Gun Stock
24 June 2019
There is not a week that passes without my thoughts turning to you. Maybe it’s the Cathedral Block with all of its unknowns and peaceful beauty or perhaps it’s my memoir that churns deeply in me, effervescing with thoughts from the American War. No matter what, I often feel your presence in rather magical ways.
Soon Sean will be visiting you and I so look forward to what new visions appear. I know that he has sent you recent footage of our progress and I thought I would share with you the video that documents the beginning of the project. Please let me know what you think.
He and I have been having some very thoughtful conversations that help us manage all the unknowns in our lives. I do hope that you have a wonderful and restful summer.
All my best,
