Portrait by Brad Bunyea
What she’s currently working on:
My belt line with Maximum Henry and Dyeing Ps1’s summer stage. It’s a huge project!!!
With whom she would like most to go on a “tête à tête”:
What good energy means to her:
In a sense energy is everything— me, you, alternating current, wind, intuitions whatever! We absorb it, we expunge it. It’s something all around that we are constantly practicing the transfer of, even in our sleep. So to me when someone says “good energy” I would say that the person you’re speaking about is having a positive impact on you, whether it’s simply the mood they are currently in or something deeper and balanced within is much more specific to the individual situation. Whatever it was, you got something good out of it. I practice reiki this is basically transferring and harnessing positive energy and trying to control the flow and destination.
What cracks her up:
Stephen Colbert. Stephen, I hope this gets your attention. Please come for tea, I swear I won’t roofie you.
With whom she would like to grow old:
What she considers a fashion “faux-pas”:
As long as you as a person are a class act, you can pull off wearing anything you want or as little as you want. Dressing is a reflection of you and a form of expression—I say go nuts.
What she would like to leave to future generation:
A better knowledge of how to take care of our planet, the importance of supporting small local businesses, to give back, and better educate the masses generally, but also about our own individual responsibilities as conscious thoughtful people.
What’s her idea of love:
I guess my idea of love is the deepest form of caring that we know how to express as people we all show it different some loud some quiet some selflessly and some selfishly and break your heart. Really deeply loving and being loved is just the best. Nothing feels like love. We should all love more.
