21 June - en route to New York

LAUNCHPROJECTS - en route to New York, I was calmly reading the Leo and His Circle, the recently released English translation of Leo Castelli's biography. About twenty minutes into the flight, our pilot announces that we are doing an emergency landing in Charlotte, North Carolina due to engine failure. After twenty minutes of sheer terror we touched down in Charlotte surrounded by fire trucks and emergency vehicles.

We arrived in New York at midnight and checked into the Surrey Hotel, our new favorite in New York. Greeted at check-in by large-scale Jenny Holzer photographs, Chuck Close tapestries, and an entire hotel filled with art from the Whitney Museum across the street; it was a great ending to an extraordinarily stressful travel day.
