Blink and you’ll miss it: celebrities on Bainbridge

March 5th, 2005 · 1 Comment

oops! – I failed to post this in time for the reception Friday night. My apologies. Josie Gray’s paintings will be at gallery Fraga until March 26.


Call it a benefit of blogging: the other day I received a postcard announcing a new show at Bainbridge Island’s gallery Fraga by Josie Gray with an appearance by poet Tess Gallagher Friday March 4 from 6 to 8 pm. Why did I receive a personalized invite with a handwritten note? I have reason to suspect it was because I blogged about Josie Gray’s show last year… quoting from the newspaper in my post Partners in passion: how does it happen?

Malcolm Gladwell is scheduled to be at the island’s Eagle Harbor Bookstore Monday night March 7th from 7:30 to 9 p.m.. I haven’t yet written my review of his latest book Blink since I was waiting to coordinate it with Ted’s. Here’s a quick summary: Although the social aspects of the blink-like rapid intuition Gladwell described, including marriage analysis and face-reading (as noted by Jon Udell) fascinated me, yet after finishing the book, I decided that I didn’t like it enough to make the enormous effort to go see him on Monday evening. However, I hope someone posts a report!

    Hi, Julie…surprise! William and I saw and heard Malcolm speak at the Darden School (UVA’S Law School) Auditorium just last night. I had read his book, The Tipping Point, which I found a very good read, but have yet to read Blink. His talk was a mix of stand-up comedy style and pseudo-shy “wish-I-were-back-in-my- NY-apt-and not-here-answering-your-questions” style. Yet, he was very entertaining. His hair and clothing said a great deal before he ever opened his mouth! He wandered onto the stage wearing a red, shiny, long sleeve collared shirt, slender fitting shiny black pants and black athletic shoes with eye-catching bright yellow stripes hugging his arches. Captivating from the start, his stories captured the heart and made us think, if not blink!
    Cheers from Charlottesville, and love to the family!
