I too received that notice today, and I totally agree with you. Rio’s
Catalog in Motion was extraordinary in what it offered, and the
opportunity so many of us had to try before we buy. Many deep and
long friendships were formed there. Lee Marshall is one, Ray Grossman
another, Cindy Litchfield, Tim sheriff, Kate Wolf, Matthew Durston,
the many Rio emplolyees, the outer corridor with Blaine Lewis,
Valentin Yotkov, Alan Revere, Dana Singer, and yes, even Hanuman.
To think that this will be no more, is mind boggling and damn
painful. My mind is racing to find a solution. The free lectures,
the paid classes, all high caliber and valued by so many.
What a shame. Yes, there is always the internet, but nothing
replaces a smile, handshake, and of course the hugs.
I go to sleep tonight with a very heavy heart.
