The Year of the Surrealist Flapper – A Return to Art for Art’s Sake

January 6th, 2010 by Devi Snively (The Directrix)

new years gang smFriends new and old counted down as the clock chimed “12, 11, 10, 9, 8…”

And like never before it felt like a really big deal.  I was at friend Amit’s party to which Circus, Catherine, Agustin and I had brought grapes – 12 each – to indulge in a Spanish custom.  One makes a new wish with each of the 12 grapes she eats once the clock strikes 12.  Twelve new wishes to be fulfilled during the new year – sweet!
