During spring break our senior year of college, I visited Andrea in New York. For one of our cultural outings, we went to the MoMA where Marina Abramović was performing “The Artist is Present.” Strangers would sit across from her while she stared back at them intently (silently).

  1. What an interesting concept! And she looks very intense. I’d probably start squirming (or even worse, laughing, which I do when I’m nervous) under that kind of scrutiny! But what a powerful illustration of how we feel like we MUST talk and fill in the silence and can’t just sit and be with one another.
