Let me tell you something. That Steve Martin... He sure knows how to describe stuff!
"He had been knocked backward, but a previously untouched part of his heart kept driving him forward, fueled by fresh emotions emerging from the wound, unknown and uncontrollable. Lacey gave him a ravishing kiss good night, then he walked east to Central Park, where he flagged down a cab. On the way back to the Carlyle, his mental reenactment of their last kiss told him, yes, she loves me, and he once again saw Lacey as an illuminating white light, forgetting that white is composed of disparate streaks of color, each as powerful as the whole."
-Martin, An Object of Beauty, 186
While on the topic of Art and light in New York, check out the new Frank Gehry building downtown... What a beaut!
