dinner for six :: round tabling with traeger di pietro

 

If I were to invite five people to dinner, I would ask Albert Einstein, Andy Warhol, Jackie Robinson, Madonna, and Oprah. All these people share the experience of overcoming challenges on the way to defining their own paths and life accomplishments. The reason we’re at the table for dinner isn’t to deal with serious stuff like the stock market, or politics. It’s something more important than everything else — kindness and interacting with people on a simpler level. It’s about the feeling of going back to kindergarten and sharing the excitement of learning shapes and numbers, and how to treat one another. Keeping it simple.

At dinner I would ask two questions based on two drawings.
Question #1  Of a circle drawn on a piece of paper, “What do you see?”

Question #2  Of a drawing of a boy drawing half a star, “What’s the title?”

Such great minds — how do they see the world?


Traeger di Pietro's paintings are on view at North Water Gallery in historic downtown Edgartown.
