"wow. Wow! WOW!!!
I have rarely been so delighted by the sheer sumptuousness of image as that which she presented.
i can muster only one complaint: The experience is so immersive that I am finding it COMPLETELY impossible to describe it to anyone.
Kathy is more 3D than reality.
The very definition of SUR-Realism.
